Classical Carson

Posted at 9:44 AM on December 16, 2008 by Fred Child

Yesterday's Fredlines had Alice Chalifoux, long-time harpist of the Cleveland Orchestra, appearing on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. That got me wondering about other classical gems from the Carson years.

How about the 11 year-old Anne Akiko Meyers?

Some of the Carson tapes haven't been released, and it seems that tapes of his early shows were recorded over, so we don't have access to, for example, guest host apperances by Beverly Sills.

What would you call this...classical music minus? Audience member David Tolley got his 15 minutes of fame when classical pianist Horacio Gutierrez had to cancel an appearance at the last minute...
