The Huntington Symphony Orchestra at the Keith-Albee Theater, possibly in the late summer or early fall of 1946, according to Raymond B. Schoewe (who is the younger man playing the bassoon). His father, Raymond A. Schoewe, is conducting the orchestra. "The guest artist at the piano was Jesus Sanroma, who was an important and prominent pianist," he said. "You will notice that everyone is very dressed up for the occasion! That's because Mr. Sanroma was considered an honored guest for a small city orchestra like the Huntington Symphony. He and my father, Raymond A. Schoewe, had been fellow students at the New England Conservatory of Music, and I believe that is how Mr. Sanroma came to Huntington to play with the symphony. ... Several of the musicians are actually from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. My father played violin with the Cincinnati Symphony for many years, and it was not unusual for him to invite some of his former colleagues to Huntington to play with the symphony when there was an important guest soloist in town." The photo also includes Raymond B. Schoewe's wife, who is playing the viola, and a brother, who is the very young man back in the percussion section.
