He's fairly new to the Los Angeles area, and we are really excited to have him back again for his second year with "Samhain: The Story of Halloween." Vito also plays the mandolin, viola, guitar, piano, and says, "I am trying to learn the saxophone, though that's not going so well. Strings are more my thing it seems."
