I believe the year was 1974 when my mother and I drove from the Denver area south to Pueblo, Colorado. We had heard that Van Cliburn was playing. When we arrived at the auditorium we were told the concert had been sold out, BUT seating was available on stage behind Mr. Cliburn. I don't know when I've ever received such wonderful news! The concert was the glorious tunes that Van Cliburn could tease from the keyboard. Even in a dusty, small auditorium the music was angelic. Even though this young adult (me)was able to sit on stage with Mr. Cliburn, yet another surprise awaited. My mother and I met Van Cliburn's mother. Yes, she was backstage that night looking elegant in a turquoise brocaid with a corsage of fresh cut sweet peas. Again, reflecting on the dusty "smallville" meeting Van Cliburn and his mother was akin to a visit to Mt. Olympus. It was an honor I will never forget and still cherish.
