I met Van Cliburn by chance at breakfast in the Hyatt hotel in Nashville in the early 80s. I greeted him and he invited me to join him for breakfast. We had a most engaging time talking about music, music schools and performances. As an Eastman School of Music grad I was able to share with him mutual acquaintances and friends. Mostly, I listened to him share about his years as a young concert artist. But he also seemed genuinely interested in my music career as well. He was a most gracious and kind person. I was honored to spend time with him.
