November 13, 1961 : an 84 year old Pablo Casals plays at the White House Dinner for President Kennedy. It was his first performance in the US since 1939…when he refused to perform in any country that supported the Franco regime. It was also almost 60 years since his last performance in the White House, when he played for Theodore Roosevelt in 1904.
