Rachel Robinson, widow of Jackie, and Rachael Worby, music director of the Pasadena Pops, met up at the annual Jackie Robinson Foundation awards dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan honoring their mutual friend the opera great Jessye Norman.
Rachael reports: “ms. robinson loves classical music, spends all her time in concert halls and was moved by the notion of our annual music under the stars concerts on the steps of city hall in front of the sculptured heads of her beloved husband and his brother, mack.”
