The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC is celebrating the 50th anniversary of MASS, the Leonard Bernstein production that opened the Kennedy Center in 1971. There are at least two prominent members of the classical music community in Austin, Texas who saw the original production.

Ann Hume Wilson, President and General Manager of  KMFA and Austin Symphony conductor Peter Bay.  Both have very fond memories of the event and one of them tells some stories out of school!!
