I had a great gig on January 1st ! I was brought back in time with performing the show "Salute to Vienna" an afternoon of Strauss and Lehar Waltzes and Polkas in a jam packed, sold out, Roy Thompson Hall. It was loads of fun, and really brought back tons of Hoofdstad Operette memoiries and experiances! its hard to believe that I played with the HO for 18 years ! its seems like another life time and or another persons life !
