Cows & Classics 2016 will feature an eclectic collection of performers, including:
Ontario Provincial Open Musical Theatre Gold Medalist
The Sills Boys

, singer and voice teacher, whose friendship with Mr. Murray goes back to their days as music students at Laurier University.
The Hogtown Brass Quintet,
a Toronto-based chamber ensemble whose priority "is to bring brass chamber music to new audiences and to reinvigorate the classic brass ensemble." One of its founding members is trumpet player Tristan Tye, son of SSO volunteers Judy and Alan Tye.
Always a hit performer,
