“Dear Verne!

It is an honor to you and the Northwest Festival Orchestra that you celebrate a concert in remembrance of my (late) husband and great musician Adi Holler.

My husband and you developed a lengthy and deep friendship that lasted over many years, but I am not able to attend this concert because of my health.

Adi played the 3.Symphony of Gustav Mahler at the Vienna Philharmonic concerts under the direction of Leonard Bernstein and at tours with the orchestra (Claudio Abbado).

For you and this concert much success and good luck!

 With heartfelt thanks,

 Marianne Holler and family”
