Description

Lendal Kotschevar describes his home on Lindbergh Lake in the Swan Valley of Montana, which he purchased in 1955 while he was a professor at the University of Montana. He discusses the history of the building, as well as environmental changes to the area wildlife he used to see near his house. Kotschevar also recalls the tragic death of his wife and the concerts he put on for 13 years in her memory for Swan Valley residents. He talks about the musicians he’s invited to play, such as pianist Joe Evans, violinist Ralph Evans, and soprano Netta Casey. Kotschevar also recalls his times in Rome (including a meeting with Pope Paul VI), Bangkok, and Iran while he served as a consultant to the United Nations about mass feeding for people in developing nations.
