On September 22, early in the morning, the trio joined their Orchestra Toronto fellows to walk the 5K to raise money for the orchestra. Who knew that we would all have so much fun?!! The morning was perfect! We watched the sun rise over Toronto and beautiful Lake Ontario, while walking and chatting about all things music and life. Matisse, Aled, Maslin, and their mom, had a fantastic day out walking with Kevin Mallon, our beloved fearless leader and conductor, all the way to the exuberant finish line where we raised our arms in victory! We made it, Kev!
It was a wonderful day out. Now we are friends for life! We love you, Kevin!
Plus, there is a plus… All musician troopers involved in the walk/run kept motoring all the way up to the Toronto Centre for the Arts, where they went on to perform Orchestra Toronto’s season opening concert: Deutsche Musik! Beethoven 5, people! Are they hard-core or what? Yes, they are! …And boy, were we tired at the end of the day! But a good tired.
Thank you to all who made our participation in the Scotiabank Challenge possible. It was the best day out ever!
