Our sound engineer said that one of the best guitarists in our country is Serezha Kolchin. I called Serezha and invited her. She happily answered she. Truly one of the best, they don’t exist anymore. He is of the old school, of the old school, a high professional in his field. We have very complex guitar parts that not every guitarist can play. And when Sergey arrived, everything immediately came as it should. We worked together then. It was a very memorable concert – 25 years of the Lyceum group. Then we went on this anniversary tour, gave more than one performance, and Sergey always responded, always worked with us, ”Makarevich said.
