Last night I had an opportunity to listen to piano concerto performed by Leon Fleisher, one of the greatest virtuosos. The music was certanily fantastic, but one thing that touched my heart most is the motivation for this performance.
Leon was flying back from an overseas trip when he heard that the homeless situation in Sacramento was devastating. He was moved and called California philharmonic and volunteered for a fundraising performance, raising money for the homeless people in Sacramento area.
The needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.
