As I was growing up, I dreamed of going to Julliard. I have loved music as long as I can remember, whether it was piano, or singing or playing the guitar.
When I was in high school, my parents adopted my brother from the eastern part of Russia. I went with them to pick him up and we stopped for a few days in Seoul, to make the adjustment for Sergey a little easier. My mom is a musician and talked my dad into taking us to see La traviata with the Korea National Opera. I fell in love with the soprano, who was making her debut in that performance.
My birthday is November 1st and my friends and I had decided to go to New York for a long weekend. Imagine my excitement when I saw that Hyesang Park was performing with Brian Zeger at none other than Julliard! I quickly grabbed three tickets and then planned to start the long arduous search for a hotel. We’d love to stay nearby so we can go out to eat before the show and then be able to just walk to the show and back. As I well know, that is easier said than done. I was so excited when at the end of the purchase process, it asked if I wanted or needed a hotel room. YES! I was thrilled when I found an affordable hotel just .2 miles from Alice Tully Hall at Julliard, although I have to admit that I was tempted (only for a moment) to stay at the Trump Tower which is just .3 miles away! This was just so easy. And on top of that, it said that 25% of the profits from the transaction go to the Julliard School. That sealed the deal.
Event attendees, even those that are local, often need or want a hotel room. Patron is leaving money (and donations) on the table.
