Sunday Bandstand 29 November 2020

This show is continuing our musical journey through the decades. Having played our way through the 1950s, 60s and 1970s, we now arrive at the 1980s. Whilst some of the music has not stood the test of time many pieces have and are still being played today, over 40 years since they first appeared on the concert and contest programmes.

Enjoy the Nostalgia...
