Memorial Concert

(Chicago, Illinois) I was mindful of Mom yesterday as I sat in her seat, B7, at Orchestra Hall and beheld her beloved Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Rachmaniov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Minor, Op. 30 and Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 73.  Mom, who was quite the pianist in her own right, would have struggled to her feet and joined us in a prolonged standing tribute to pianist Denis Matsuev for his bravura performance of the amazingly difficult Rach 3.  Mom was with us yesterday in Orchestra Hall, and I am already looking forward to sharing the next concert with her, on April 22.

Hannah Dick Macfarlan McKelvy occupied seat B7 for many happy years at Orchestra Hall in Chicago.
