Carnegie Hall officially opened in New York City on May 5, 1891, with a concert conducted by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Built with money donated by Andrew Carnegie, the hall was the home of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra before it moved to Lincoln Center. When plans were made to tear the building down, Maestro Richard Schulze, Chairman Emeritus of the American Conservatory of Music, led a media campaign and fight to stop the demolition. This led Issac Stern to question how anything could be done to save the building, because he felt it was impossible. Maestro Richard Schulze convinced Issac Stern of the possibility of its being saved and then handed him the operating plan and feasibility study that had been previously carried out several years earlier by Maestro Schulze which then enabled the city to purchase the site and declare it a National Historic Landmark.

The American Conservatory of Music honors the Bishop of Rome, who worked, together with Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, to bring unity in the Faith to all the fragmented parts of Christianity.  He is to be remembered for his unselfish devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Only Head of the Christian Church, because the Body of Christ is a Divine Institution.  May the Holy memory of John Paul II, Bishop of Rome, be eternal. Fourth Friday of Great Lent - Salutations to the Holy Theotokos, April 8, 2005: Funeral for Bishop of Rome set to happen today

Van Cliburn, the most beloved classical musician from the State of Texas (which had produced, in addition, scores of famous musicians from all genres), is honored for his legacy and assistance he offered Richard Schulze in the effort to save Carnegie Hall, the Old Metropolitan Opera House of New York (which was unfortunately demolished) and his contribution in the effort to save Felsengarten, the former summer home of Theodore Thomas, founder and first music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (placed on the National Historic Register by Theodora Schulze, President of the American Conservatory of Music). We celebrate now his life contributions to the quintessential art of music performance. In Memoriam, July 12, 1934 - February 27, 2013.

Congratulations to the World Series Baseball Champions: our own Chicago White Sox!

The American Conservatory of Music salutes all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. May their memories be eternal. Through the Prayers of the Most Holy Mother of God, Lord, Have Mercy.

Jesus Christ comes to Earth 1,973 years ago, and also on this day we commemorate His Birth and the special Agape He gave to all of us. He is the Savior for all those who believe in Him and His Resurrection. (John 3:16) He is the same: yesterday, today, and forever more: King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, the Alpha and Omega. Glorify Him! Amen.

Christ is Ascended to Heaven and is Seated at the Right Hand of God the Father! Glorify Him!

On the Sunday of Pentecost, the One Congregation of Jesus Christ celebrates its birth: Blessed are You, O Christ our God, Who made the fishermen, wisemen, sending upon them the Holy Spirit and through them, drawing in the world. O Loving One, glory to You.
