At last fall’s Annapolis boat show, Ocean Navigator had a party aboard the schooner Virginia. And one of the musicians playing on Virginia’s deck that night was a violinist named Willie Burdick. Little did we know that Willie would be playing at the White House only a few months later. Here is Willie, fourth from left, and the other members of his school group, the Ellington Virtuosi, after playing for President and Michelle Obama.
Anybody recognize the dour fellow in the painting?
