The Wedding Singer and the Band Leader

Rachael Dillman
Rachael Dillman was about nine years old and a fellow parishioner at St. Augustine's in Kitsilano where my wife and I met. One day we heard Rachael  singing and asked if she'd consider singing at our wedding. She agreed, and her Ave Maria melted the hearts of everyone present.

That was 13 years ago. Now Rachael's 22 and still singing, mostly at Holy Rosary Cathedral. Next week she's going to be performing with the grand old man of Vancouver music, bandleader Dal Richards, who invited her to make a guest appearance with his orchestra at the River Rock Show Theatre Saturday, Nov. 13, 1 to 4 p.m.

Proceeds will go to the Dal Richards Foundation.

For tickets visit Ticketmaster.  And to sample Rachael's voice, visit her MySpace page.
