This is wonderful! I interned with the Carnegie Hall archives during my spring break in 2010. They do wonderful work there, and I am so glad that they are able to find and preserve these amazing records. I love New York, and I love music and history. Gino is a wealth of information, and it was a privilege to work with him.
