Accordion Events in May!

Dear Friends,
Firstly, let me thank you for all those who came to see The Accordionist in Poole, Exeter and at the New End Theatre in London.  It’s so important to support accordion events as it creates a demand and inevitably leads to new people hearing and appreciating our instrument.  We got some great reviews and are contemplating taking the show northwards this time on a tour.  Will let you know when.

On Saturday 28th May, the accordion students of the Royal Academy of Music will be playing at 7.30pm at Our Lady and St Thomas of Canterbury Church, 22 Roxborough Park, Harrow on the Hill, Middx, HA1 3BE (Tel. 020 8422 2513).  For some students, like Ksenija Sidorova, graduation looms and we find that suddently they are already in their final year at the RAM.  The concert will feature some beautiful music brought to life in the wonderful acoustic of a church whose size is perfect for an accordion recital.  I believe there will be food involved too as last year (Bangers and Mash). Not all details have been confirmed but I will send a reminder regarding ticket prices nearer the date.
Then there are another two events the week before, sadly on the same day!  Sunday 22nd May. However since one is in Canterbury and the other in London both events will probably not affect eachother.  Please see the relevant fliers attached. 
Note that the Owen Murray Accordion Day event in Canterbury also includes a composers workshop in the morning at 10.00 am and at 3.30 pm a workshop for teachers and students.  Students may bring their accordions and play in this afternoon workshop. 
All the best
