    The Wichita State Univ. orchestra played at the opening of the Austria Center in Aug., 1987 and I played harp. The orch. also played a concert with the Vienna Boys Choir at St. Stephan’s Cathedral and Mozart’s Coronation Mass at the Cathedral in Salzburg at the height of the Festival. It was a high point in my life to see and be a part of something cultural that deepened the experience. We also gave concerts at Nurnberg (in an airport hangar) and Eisenstadt. We ended up in Heidelberg where my friend and I went by train to Belgium and Amsterdam. Leigh was no longer there but we stayed in her apartment. Trip of my lifetime!
