Where in the World is Smokey?

Singing in Crossville

Bruce Downsbrough is UT's Assistant Vice President, Advancement Services. In October 2007, he and Smokey were at Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, Tenn.

Downsbrough says this was a "dress rehearsal for the Knoxville Choral Society's 'Broadway Revue' performed at the Playhouse that evening. More specifically, these photos show the Knoxville Chamber Chorale, a small group auditioned from the Choral Society, rehearsing a medley from Les Miserables."

Smokey never sang so well, Bruce! I hope Smokey had as much fun as the rest of us did!

A fine example of musicianship. Smokey may have a second calling we were unsure of. Thanks for showing us his hidden talents, Bruce!!

From the enthusiastic audience we thought the show was great, as we had anticipated: Top programming, entertaining book, variety of good soloists, wonderful choral diction with contagious joy and energy, plus workhorse Danny! I wish the show could be reprised and I could join you.
