Richard Jones, brass tutor for Accent Music Education Hub and Musical Director/ Conductor of the Accent Community Wind Band, conducted yet another outstanding concert, sadly his last one at St Andrew’s Church in Orford.
The audience were treated to an array of performances from various groups and soloists during a fun-packed evening. Mr Jones entertained the crowd as ever with his well-researched compering.
Going from strength to strength, The Accent Community Wind Band performed various pieces to rapturous applause.
Janice Pounds, Strategic Lead for Accent Music Education Hub spoke on the evening. ”Well done Richard and all the performers on such a successful evening. Accent Music Education Hub has been blessed to have the dedication of Mr Jones over the last 10 years and his will certainly be big shoes to fill. We hope to see the Community Wind Band continue to improve with a new Musical Director and we wish Richard well in his new endeavours.”
Fond farewells brought a tear to the eyes of many of the band members as well as the audience.
GOOD LUCK Richard!
