Dear Ludmila Aronovna,

Thank you very much for your exploit!  Yes, it's an exploit - to connect people, countries and cultures based on the Russian music, literature, history and art!

It was my first experience of taking part in EBP, and maybe I was the oldest participant...But I enjoyed the communication with young musicians from St. Pertersburg and Boston and the music they performed.

I found the discussion about love and art led by three writers and art professionals from both countries so absorbing and interesting that I'm looking forward to attending the next EBP.

Good Luck, dear Mrs. Leibman!

With the warmest wishes,


Malvina Goldin,

New Bostonian from Moscow
