Last evening's call from grandson, Wyn Delano, was electric. I heard the excitement in Wyn's 16 year old mellow voice as he told me that he'd just returned from UCLA. He was bursting with the news that he'd experienced the second and final evaluation of his vocal potential by Vladimir Chernov, who heads UCLA's Vocal Instruction department, and that Mr. Chernov had accepted him for instruction. What a heady moment for that high school junior! (Do look at Wyn's website listed in Links). As a good grandmother, I "googled" Mr. Chernov, and was duly impressed by this baritone's c.v. and his ongoing heavy performance schedule. What an awesome opportunity for wonderful Wyn. I'm dreaming of reserving 2 front row seats at Lincoln Ctr. for his debut.
