How I remember Robin Williams

Robin Williams was the first celebrity I ever saw live.

When I was little my mom took my sister and me to the youth symphony.  It was Peter and the Wolf, narrated by Robin Williams.  I knew Robin Williams from Mork and Mindy.  I also already knew the score and narration for Peter and the Wolf, and so I was excited to see Robin Williams, but I didn't think he was going to be funny.  But he was!  He made Peter and the Wolf funny! He was so delightful and all the kids were laughing, as I'm sure the adults were too.

So, you could say he exceeded my expectations that day, and basically every day after that.

Thank you for sharing that story. I would have loved to have heard him narrate "Peter and the Wolf". That would have been a very special memory from a special man. Thanks for sharing.
