People . . . People Who Make Music
At her concert Saturday night at Barclays Center, Barbra Streisand had Anthony Newley singing Who Can I Turn To up on a screen. She sang with him. The duet moved us, got inside.
At home, Jonathan and I watched the Streisand-Newley duet on YouTube, then Newly singing it alone in costume on Ed Sullivan (Watch it!). After, I sat down at the piano and played the song.
In college, we had a musical event called STUNT NIGHT. Each class performed. I was the freshman pianist. My classmate, Susan Kuhner, the freshman director, and I rewrote the lyrics to Who Can I Turn To. A Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter came to the Western Reserve (now Case Western Reserve) campus and wrote an article about us. Jonathan found it.
There I am in 1965 at the piano.
Thank you, Susan Kuhner.
Thank you Barbra Streisand, Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse. You make my heart sing.
