I spent an amazing week at Wildacres Retreat with dear friends attending the John Mack Oboe Camp. If you remember, Mr. Mack was my teacher, mentor and friend who passed away in 2006. It was only this year that I could find it in my heart to return. The camp is now taught by prominent students of Mr. Mack's. It was a bittersweet week, some great times and some disappointments. I'm not sure I will go back again but haven't ruled it out.
