'7ASO Vacation
Three Cellists Near the French Riviera
April, 1957
Because the orchestra gave only about 100 concerts a year, we had much free time.
While on tour in the south of France several of us rented motor scooters and rode from Nice
up into the mountains. The cellists are David Lepard, John Sant' Ambrogio and myself.

Bus Wreck
Nov. 22, 1957: Serious bus crash that injured 5 musicians near Phillipsburg,
a town equidistant from Karlsruhe, Mannheim, and Heidelberg

Cello Scraps
My cello, which was rented, ended up
in 24 pieces and was unrepairable.
