She handed out a pack of three-by-five index cards during her much-anticipated annual concert of songs here. Many cards came back ringing with testimonials.

Now that Maestro Riccardo Muti is the music director of La Scala, will he strive to replace Milan's beautiful opera house with a modern facility? Mr. Muti has, on several occasions, expressed disdain for his Philadelphia audience and has made it very clear that Italy is his home. Why are we allowing him to convince us that we must replace the venerable Academy of Music for a contemporary music hall?

Performing as part of "12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief," which is shaping up to be the biggest music event in history with a potential worldwide audience of 2 billion people, wasn't exactly part of his plans.
