Swiss Ambassador visits OPEN House
Last week I attended a dinner at the Swiss Consulate in NY where I met the Swiss Amabssador Urs Ziswiler. Urs was hosting a party to celebrate the opening of the 117th Carnegie Hall Season with a gala benefit concert featuring David Robertson leading the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA. As it turns out David Robertson was ill but I did sit near New York governor Eliot Spitzer who I also invited to visit the house. Ambassador Ziswiler did tour the house a week later.
