Importance: High Hi Trish, I'm re- sending the portrait shot (attached - please credit photog Todd Korol) and will courier the disc with the other photos to you right now - didn't want it getting lost in the shuffle at The Star while you were away. Is this for Saturday's paper? BTW, I'll be leaving for Montreal at the crack of dawn tomorrow for two days. If you need anything while I'm away, please contact Alex Skoczylas or Sandra D'Angelo in the marketing office at Tafelmusik. Tel: 416 964-9562. Thanks!
