    Thanks so much for the plug for my video and greetings to you all from Seattle area! Wish I could come to Bosch some time but life hasn’t made it possible yet.

  2. I’m afraid I can’t answer that question. But this Vic Salvo teaches school in Sacramento, CA. He’s a great musician and has composed some wonderful pieces.


    • Hi Basil- yes that is me- I have been participating in the annual Baha’i Music Industry Weekend at
      the Bosch Baha’i School in the Santa Cruz mountains for several years
      now and I enjoy the environment, the people and the music very much.
      We learn a lot from each other. I have taught a course there the last two
      Hope you are well. I have not been to Westport since
      2004- but I miss it- hope I can get out there before too long to visit Bruce and Richard.
      All the best for now- Vic

    • Is this Basil Salvo from Westport, CT???
