        so thrilling to hear and see the Ying family–looking so beautiful and radiant, and playing with such fullness of heart and sound– on my MAC computer up the block from New Trier High School. I’m reminded how fortunate we all are having grown up and away (not me though) from Winnetka and bringing the best of this small refined enclave to different avenues of the globe. My daughter Anina 1982 was in Daniel’s class and she has danced and performed all over in Europe since 1990, a highlight in Augsburg in 2004 in Osvaldo Golijovs “Pasion segun San Marco.” I love your recording of Yiddishbbuk, which of all things and coincidentally, I put on my stereo today, in order to avoid Parsifal. It was touching and truly heartwarming.
        Continue playing with such joy and passion and compassion. Thank you Barbara von Molnar

        And as always, thank you Relevant Tones and please send this on to the Ying Family.
