I did it! Help ALS research and also other good causes and in memory of wonderful friends of the past, still present today in our hearts, like Hans Vonk, who died 10 years ago of ALS and Boris Pergamenschikow, who also died much too early 10 years ago.

    Hans Vonk conducted this performance without the use of his left arm and had to put the baton down to turn pages with his right hand with great difficulty. He was a remarkable musician. Phyllis Susen, former Director of Education at Carnegie Hall and the Philadelphia Orchestra was another victim of this frightening affliction. Bravo Lars Vogt.
