INSIDE the tent Meet The Blue Canvas Orchestra (Article continued from page 7) The Blue Canvas Orchestra is made up of a core group of players and singers plus our Visuals Director Betty Ferris. We welcome guests throughout the season, but when they’re on stage with the BCO, they ALL become the BCO. No matter who’s in the band tonight, you know you are going to be thoroughly entertained.
