"What could be better than to escape winter's chill for an evening of music, fine food, and wine with friends? My jazz trio, along with several CONCORA singers, are busy preparing choice selections from the great American Songbook and classic jazz numbers for you. The musical menu includes a surprise guest singer who will join the ensemble for one of the most beautiful songs in the repertoire... come and be part of the magic, including a sing-along for everyone to close the festivities. I hope you and your friends can join us for a warm evening of Wine, Jazz & Song!"
— Bill Stillinger, The Sir William Trio
