Scott MacIsaac plays at 2009 Winners fo the Calgary Concerto Competition concert

Yesterday, I was very much looking forward to a entertaining and enjoyable musical experience. Today, I can tell you that I was thrilled by the young talents I saw and heard.

My friend’s grandson Scott MacIsaac gave a truly wonderful performance and I enjoyed it very much. I am sure his grand parents, parents, brother and teacher Marilyn Engle are all very proud of his achievement at the young age of 16.
