Red Hot Rhythm Royals
Our dixieland Band, the Red Hot Rhythm Royals, has been busy this year.   They played at our annual Cabaret concert, at the Charlton Gazebo, at Calvary Episcopal Church in Burnt Hills, and at Indian Meadows Park in Glenville.  They are scheduled to play a Halloween Concert for the residents of Coburg Village.

Cabaret 2018

Our 2018 Cabaret concert, held at the Holiday Inn - Saratoga, was a sold-out success.  We had our Dixieland Band, the Red Hot Rhythm Royals, play before dinner along with a very successful silent auction.  After a lovely dinner, the orchestra played.  The first half of the concert was more classical and included  pieces by Bizet, Massenet, Strauss and Wagner.
The second half of the concert was more pops and  included Sound of Music, Dances with Wolves, Fanfare for the Common Man and America the Beautiful.

"Thanks so much for spectacular performance.  It was absolutely wonderful and we are most grateful to all of you involved, both MCO and MVC, for spending their day making music to benefit UPH.  I tend to be a little emotional but I was moved to tears several times yesterday by the beauty of the songs performed by both sets of musicians.  This is a memory that I will cherish!"
