Ned Rorem in Avery Fisher Hall - 17 December, 1977

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 194:

Philharmonic tonight with Shirley for Bernstein Songfest. Felicia high up in a box looking ashen, fragile, and so beautiful. Lenny glanced toward the box before turning to the audience to announce that the slow movement of Schumann's Second Symphony would be dedicated to [Tommy] Schippers.
