AMAZING!

I have always loved Heifetz. Here is a fascinating article about his tours to the troops during WWII. I love him even more now!

I love the part where he makes his house guests go outside to witness the lowering of the flag in the evening. A true patriot.

I love your photo on your blog, by the way.

Thanks for researching and sending me this article, Tawna. As you say, he was a real patriot.

I enjoyed hearing about the audition process for the pianists, and I thought the story was hilarious (if not nail-biting) about the soldier rescuing Heifetz' violin!
