Originally from Minsk, Belarus, Misha holds a masters degree in orchestra conducting and music education.
The 10-concert Fishstock Series is largely the same group of musicians Fishstock had planned to showcase in 2020, said concert promoter Steve Ellmann. “If you saw my message last year, you know that I was excited about the opportunity to bring back all of our great 2019 artists for the 2020 season,” said Ellmann. “Then the pandemic started! I promised to bring everyone back for 2021, and with one exception, that’s exactly what we’re doing! The exception is Michael P. Smith, who sadly died last August 3, 2020 and whose August 8, 2021 performance date is now being filled by a different musical artist.
