Ann Yunker also played trumpet on the Stan Kenton Medley, and Glen Newton played vibrophone on several selections.

There was a thunderstorm before the concert, so the live audience was small. Yet on the video of the concert, you can hear thunderous applause, thanks to the CTV 15 audio operator, who had recorded applause at the band's July 4 concert and played it back at appropriate times during the July 19 concert.
