Overview

How did the maestro advise the young violinist?

There is a story of a young violinist who had an audition at Carnegie Hall. As she hurriedly exited the subway, she was momentarily disoriented. To her relief, she saw an old man with a violin under his arm and thought that surely he would know.

“Sir, can you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?” she asked.

“Practice,” he said, with a grin.

This must-have volume will quickly become a trusted companion for an entire lifetime of engagement with the beauty and richness of the Catholic faith.
