Part IV: Great Centennial performances

Don Rice on stage at Isham Park Centennial
 Don Rice, co-presenter with Cole Thompson of Lost Inwood at the Indian Road Cafe on the first Tuesday of each month came last in the performance schedule for the centennial.

Don played his collection of Edison sound recordings from the era of the 1912 celebration.  These were the pieces that were performed by the musicians in Isham Park on September 28, 1912, but the recordings were not of the actual performances on that day in the park.  Even so, they helped set the tone at the end of the event by reviving marching band music rarely heard anymore.
