“No one in the audience leaves the production unmoved!” wrote Gail Money, a parishioner of Holy Trinity Fonthill, after attending several performances by Song of the Grand.

With honesty and tenderness, she continued, this troupe has created Song of the Grand, a story woven in narrative and original songs of two young couples and their lives during WWII.

The more comedic Trumpet in my Ear concerns separated retired couples living in a home, whose married “history” comes back to haunt them while others show them how to correct their conflicts in a humorous manner.

“Many churches have been blessed by these performances,” continued Gail, especially since “they donate their time and grand efforts to provide income for the parish in which they perform.”
