Brief Report “on the night”

Another very popular concert with 60 people present, which contained both serious and comic pieces. “The Bassoon – a humorous song” even allowed us to hear Andrew’s singing voice, mixed with phrases played on the bassoon. At the end they gave us two encores –  Milde’s Tarantella and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee. Both were amazingly fast and they provided an excellent finish to a thoroughly enjoyable concert.
