SqueezEast 12th June 2022

Slideshow accompaniment - Charmaine by Erno Rapee and Lew Pollack,
arranged by Paul Barrett

We had so much fun at our band day, after such a long break. It was good to meet up with friends, some of whom we hadn't seen since our last event three years ago in 2019. We played a range of pieces sourced and arranged by our conductor Paul Barrett. Our 32 piece band consisted of piccolo, treble, baritone and bass instruments. English, Anglo and Duet concertinas were all represented. We thank all our participants and the organisers and helpers for making the event so enjoyable and we look forward to making more music together next year.

Turn on (and off) each player in turn to hear some of the tunes we learnt during the day.
