Annette Baltes is enjoying her first season as a performer with Thursday Musical. Baltes also is a cantor at St. Mary of the Lake Church in Plymouth. She has performed with the Saint Joseph the Worker Community Orchestra as a soloist and recently gave a recital for her friends and family to celebrate her 40th birthday. Baltes studied at Luther College in Decorah, IA. She resides in Plymouth with her husband, Eric, and her 3 children. In addition to singing, Annette is an avid athlete and competes in triathlons and half marathons. She wishes to thank her husband and children for their love and support and her teacher, Pat Kent, for always making her realize she still has the power to achieve her dreams.

Jim Reilly has performed as both a tenor and pianist in over twenty states as well as Norway and Holland. His composing has taken second place to his performing, but he has received commissions from The Schubert Club, The First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, The International Leiv Eriksson Festival, and private individuals. His songs often are settings of his own poems, but he is currently working on a set of songs to texts by the nineteenth century Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi.
