NADCA 2011 Gala Awards Dinner Event, Part 3

Two weeks ago, I wrote about North American Die Casting Association’s Gala Awards Dinner Event, and promised updates over the coming weeks with more clips of the NADCA Quartet’s performance.

If you remember, the Gala was held in conjunction with the Die Casting Congress and Tabletop exhibit.  For the first time in six years this event was held as a die casting only event and serves as a solid platform for the community to come together with industry colleagues.

In addition to the Awards ceremony, there was surprise entertainment before the dinner for the first time in NADCA history.  The “NADCA Quartet” performed five jazz standards that included “Freddy the Freeloader”, “Take the A Train”, “Blue Monk”, “Misty”, and “Don’t Get around Much Anymore”.

The NADCA Quartet consisted of me (NADCA Chairman, Leonard Cordaro), NADCA Engineer, Alex Monroe, NADCA Technical Director, Steve Uvardy, and Piano Man, Robert Monroe.

Please enjoy this short video clip of Ella Fitzgerald’s well know standard, “Misty.”  Over the next two weeks, we’ll feature the remaining two clips.  Stay tuned!
