You may not believe this but today I’m just coming down from our Sun. P.M. performance of Messiah. It was wonderful and again I hated to see it end. I want to thank you sincerely for all you do to make it what it has become. You have heightened our musical accomplishment to new plateaus. I thank you for that. I have said this before and I’ll say it again – – – – Your conducting is a work of art – – Your direction is clear and decisive. It’s like a ballet.. Honoring me was extra special and I shall have it in my memory for many many years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
