The photos say it all! Wonderful singing and dancing, delicious food and drink, speeches, poems, and a great party atmosphere, all in all Saturday's "Highland Adventure" was a wonderfully fun evening's entertainment.
Orpheum voices and friends treated us to Scottish songs, including a newly commissioned arrangement of Dougie McLean's "Caledonia" by local Vancouver favourite, Earle Peach, who was on hand to accompany. Matthew Leightons solo was superb. An excellent piper led the gathered company from parish hall to church and back again. There were highland dancers, and Irene Vavasour led us all in Scottish country dances with her customary commanding flair. David Powell gave us fiery fiddle tunes on his violin. There were speeches and poems in the beautiful highland dialect, excellent Scottish fare, even a sprig of heather on every table. All in all a great evening. Many thanks to our beloved music director, Dr. Kevin Zakresky and many generous friends for giving us a taste of the old country! And all for a good cause, St. Helen's Anglican Church West Point Grey.
