1. In Los Angeles, Dorothy Chandler leads a money drive to construct the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion which includes a multi-purpose stage theater. First night is an opera,Swan Lake, for which I go with Dorothy and her husband- she gives her husband and me earplugs and uses earplugs herself!!!!
2. Walt Disney raises the money for the Walt Disney Concert Hall, next to the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion. First night I go with Walt and his wife- he gives us earplugs!!!!
3. I raise the money for and do the hiring of contractors to refurbish and reopen the Hollywood Bowl, after it had been closed for several years. For opening night I chose nice soft and sweet music for the Los Angeles Philharmonic to play- about half of those in the 20,000+ audience put in earplugs!!!!
