Between a the Theme song from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, presentation of and the Raiders March from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, MPO Music Director Sabatino Vacca led a surprisingly intimate and humourous question and answer period with an audience of almost 500 attendees. One guest queried which instrument Vacca felt was the most integral within an orchestra. Before he could respond, a musician on stage raised his trombone up high in answer, followed quickly by laughter and a succession of musicians raising their own instruments. After a  poll of the many children in attendance, a youth near the front asked how one might join the Milton Philharmonic  Orchestra and the Music Director encouraged him warmly to audition for the group.
