#Fact
1He once played a solo piano concert in Florida on the same Bösendorfer nine-foot grand that Victor Borge was using at the time for his performances and TV broadcasts because Borge wasn't playing the instrument that night.
2He had lunch with Jehan Sadat, former First Lady of Egypt and wife of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
3He was honored with a private, fully staged production, with orchestra and costumes, presented exclusively for him and three of his colleagues by the Beijing Opera in an otherwise-empty theater in Shanghai.
4He was part of the editorial staff for a popular college text book that he later used as a student in graduate school.
5As a teenager, he established a long-standing speed record for swimming across the lake at his summer camp.
