A combined concert with Kirk Talley, Nov 8, 2008 at 7:30 PM in Knox Presbyterian Church, Stratford.

Some personal comments about the evening: Kirk is a consummate professional entertainer, and is very able to carry the audience through the entire evening. He is not easily thrown, but the comment "where'd you get those teeth?" from a choir member (whom I shall not name here) left him speechless! It came from so far out in left field that Kirk didn't know what to say! The other great comment came from Kirk: "I've got the crud".

The program for the evening. Some notes about the program: For some reason, our organist John was left off the program, likely because St. Thomas was not expecting to have an organ at the concert, but got one at the last minute. I have added his name to the appropriate songs. Also, the pianists name was spelled wrong ("Pieter" instead of "Peter") and has been corrected.

Pictures during the afternoon practice.

Members in Victoria Park before the concert, and the front of Centennial Hall.
