50 strong Orchestra
The Final Countdown, as played by the Craven Accordion Orchestra and Orchester Musika Akkordia....with only one practise.
Wow, What A Night.
We played to a packed audience at Skipton Town Hall and it truly was a memorable evening.
We opened the night with a selection of pieces from James Bond, to Galliano's Tango Pour Claude, through to Bryan Adams' 1980's hit Summer of 69. Our guests from Berlin, Orchester Musika Akkordia delighted the audience with the second half, from Bach's Praladium, to Cafe Venezia and The Pink Panther.
There was a raffle with proceeds going to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. This allowed both orchestras to set up and join together for a rousing rendition of Europe's, The Final Countdown.
Back by popular demand, was our fun and informal 'Summer Bash'.
It was a chance for our members and juniors to perform their party pieces infront of family and friends
We had everything from solos, duets, groups and the 'Sing-a-long' group which are very busy within our community.
Please view our photos of the evening
We have been working hard behind the scenes to make our 2017 Summer Showcase one to remember.
We are delighted to annouce that we are holding our event at Skipton Town Hall on the 19th August.
Alongside us, will be Orchester Musika Akkordia from Germany, as part of their England/Scotland tour, for a joint summer concert.

Pictures of our successful concert in the delightful St. James' Church, Clapham can now be viewed.
This was our second visit to Clapham, North Yorkshire and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.....our audience did as well.
