To Whom It May Concern,

Today the Auburn Hills Senior Services presented a Halloween Party for our Community Seniors. Bill Hart (trumpet, flugelhorn, vocals) and keyboardist Alan Tedrick provided a very unique musical program. Their interactive show allowed the seniors to request songs THEY wanted to hear. It was delightful to see people smiling, tapping their toes, and humming along to their favorite songs, all beautifully played without a single piece of printed music.
Bill and Alan shared interesting information about some of the requested songs. (The composer of It Had To Be You, Isham Jones, grew up in Saginaw.)
When the program ended, I received compliments from many of our patrons (some by telephone) thanking us for the entertainment.
It's great as an Event Coordinator to find entertainment that encompasses social, educational, memory activators, humor, kindness, and beautiful music - all rolled into one.
