     Our talented performers for The Pirates of Penzance are featured in the Pirates-2016 link in the sidebar on this page, but here we wish to honor our splendid orchestra. Most of them have been with us for many years and their talents and professionalism have made an enormous contribution to our artistic success. We are very grateful for their efforts. As you can see, they all enthusiastically joined into the swashbuckling theme of the show, even interacting with the stage performers upon occasion! The next time you see a CG&SS show, you might remain a minute after the final curtain and tell them how much you appreciate their efforts.
