Carnegie Hall Fall Gala 2017

Last night was the Carnegie Hall 2017 Gala performance followed by Dinner at Cipriani 42nd Street. The concert was a total crowd pleaser for so many reasons. Firstly due to a strain in one of Lang Langs hands he is only able to play one handed and this could have been very tricky as he was due to perform Gerswin's Rhapsody in Blue for 2 pianos with Chick Corea and the Philadelphia Orchestra, however Lang Lang suggested that a third piano be bought on stage and that the 14 year old Maxim Lando to play his other hand.
The three of them had the audience in raptures.
After the concert the crowd made their way to Cipriani 42nd Street for a wonderful dinner of shrimp salad, rack of lamb and a cream cake with the Carnegie symbol made out of white and red chocolate on top.
A bib shout out to Mercedes Bass who not only looked radiant but also danced up a storm well after the guests were beginning to leave.
