Summer Concert

Roade Community Orchestra performed their annual summer concert at St James Great Church, Hanslope on 1st July 2018 with guests Hartwell school junior orchestra and "Jinx" vocal group.

Performing in the church was a new experience for RCO and greatly enjoyed by all. A big thanks goes to our Musical Direct Ian who has worked so hard putting the concert together as well as performing in the vocal group.

A special thanks also to Hugh for such excellent comparing throughout the event

A fitting Tribute to Armit

Another big thank you to the all of the organisers, performers and attendees of Tim's memorial concert on Sunday, it was a great success. The event was attended by over 150 people comprising of Tim's family, friends and fellow orchestra members. 

The Abington Wind Band provided much of the musical entertainment on the evening which included a wide range of excellently performed pieces from Carmen to the 1930's swing classic Minnie the moocher. Thanks also go to Roade Orchestra member Phillip Britcher for performing a piano recital at the memorial.

Once again I'd like to extend our deepest and heartfelt condolences to Amit's family.
