At 97 years old, she wanted to hear the music fill the room for one last time, like she remembered as a child.

"We'll right now we got here early, had a very nice lunch. I said to my son, we're going to stay and listen to the music a little bit, I just want to hear it one more time here at ZB hall,” said Borlick.
