15-April-2019. Such sad news from France – a fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, Ile de la Cite in Paris. In my youth (summer of 1976), I spent my summer as a violist in an american youth orchestra. We toured Europe (Rome, Venice, Innsbruck, Paris, Amsterdam and London). Our first performance was at Carnegie Hall in New York City. We also had an afternoon concert at Notre Dame Cathedral. Fond memories of yesteryear.
