Super Orchestra Day 2017 – 29th October, Ripley Village Hall, Ripley, Guildford

Super Accordion Orchestra

Super Orchestra Day 2017

Calling all accordionists! Following the success of last year’s event the ‘Super Orchestra Day – 2017’ is back. Participants will work on 3 pieces during morning and afternoon rehearsals and then perform in the evening concert with a West End percussionist. Ian Watson will be your conductor and Shona Holmes will lead the orchestra. It’s amazing what you can achieve in a day – the concert last year was a triumph. If you’ve never played in an accordion orchestra before this is your perfect opportunity. Last year there were 80 players – how many will we be in 2017…
Ian Watson and Julie North – your friendly course leaders.

This year a ‘mini orchestra’ will also be introduced. It will run on the same day in the rear hall, lead by Julie Luck.

Although it is free anyone wishing to take part must be registered. Parents / guardians should email: mail@londonao.co.uk to register. We all know we need more young people playing the accordion so please do spread the word!
