On September 12, the last musical evening was held at Spaso House - on October 3, the Head of the American diplomatic mission completed his service and returned to the States. To say goodbye Mr. John Huntsman (himself a former rock musician) decided to good music: on stage performed US folk-blues singer and songwriter Tim Easton and Roman Miroshnichenko with his trio. At the end of the evening the musicians performed two joint compositions.

- If the US and Russia could interact as smoothly as Tim and Roman play together then there would be no problem! - said John Huntsman. - Despite the existing differences between us, we learned to find common ground, including through music. I admire the Russian people, I am glad that I had a chance to work with the Russian authorities. Although it was not always possible to reach a solution to all the problems, but at least we were able to stabilize our relations. Mary Kaye (Ambassador's wife) and I will miss Russia!
