    Do we see Michael Aducci next to you? La Honda Music Camp misses him and says Hi!

  3. Well, you see Mike, but you don’t see me, Vladimir. I’m playing Les Miserable in San Francisco and had to miss SSV. 🙂

  4. Vladimir Gurevich

    Yep, we realized that after the concert ended and we went to the stage. 🙂

  5. I do wish I could have been there to see you! How’s the oboist of the family?
