I am planning on attending this festival and wonder if anyone knows if Tom 
Fischer is going to be playing clarinet with Banu this weekend. Tom and I go 
way back to our Indiana University days in the late 70s and I haven't seen 
him in more than 20 years. Any ideas about who Banu is bringing to Missouri 
this weekend? Thanks.
