A Fine Evening, in the Style of 1864

We can only hope for more of the same to take place in the Royal Alexandra Hall.  A splendid evening of fine food and entertainment was the combined effort of the Key City Theatre and The Cranbrook History Centre on Wednesday, December 9th. Political speeches from the likes of Sir John A. Macdonald, a fortune teller, predicting the lives of some well-known political characters of the time, and a performance from one of Canada's finest concert pianists, Michael Kim, made for a magical night.

Thanks to all who played a part in this Christmas treat. More please.

Political mutterings in the corner

Michael Kim playing the Broadwood piano. The program consisted of a varied selection of beautiful period music from Bach to Debussy but concluded with a slightly more recent piece, Gershwin's emotional 'Rhapsody in Blue'.
