Leigh Hoffman resides at Messiah Village near Mechanicsburg.

But memories go back to a concert in York County about 60 years ago.

Famed pianist Roger Williams performed with the Spring Garden Band at William Penn High School in “1958.

“I played the bassoon at that time and got to know Roger. He just passed away two years ago or so … ,” Leigh wrote.

Williams and Leigh corresponded and Williams sent a photo of himselve just before he passed away.

“I was happy to know this great musician!” Leigh wrote.

If anyone else remembers that concert, contact Leigh or comment below.

This view comes from the grounds of Cityview Community Church, northeast of York. That’s a favorite vantage point to watch Fourth of July fireworks. Judging from the line of vehicles existing its 1655 Roosevelt Ave. parking lot on Sundays, it’s also a popular place to attend church.
