In April we are featuring the
Back by popular demand, conductor Richard Yaus has organized the second Accordion Orchestra Project and they will be our featured performers for April. The first Accordion Orchestra Project was organized by Richard in 2013 to provide an opportunity for Bay Area accordionists to perform in an accordion orchestra, who might otherwise not be able to attend rehearsals or make the longer term commitment required by other Bay Area accordion ensembles. There are a limited number of rehearsals that culminate in a final concert performance. To say the first Project was a success is an understatement! - both orchestra participants and audience clamoured for Richard to organize a second Accordion Orchestra Project. The San Francisco Accordion Club is honored to once again host the final concert performance.
We extend a great big THANK YOU to Richard Yaus for making this opportunity available to the Bay Area accordionists and friends of the accordion!
To complete the day, some of the top professional accordionists on the West Coast, such as Gail Campanella, Peter Di Bono and Lou Jacklich have also agreed to perform on the program! (and fill a few chairs in the Orchestra)
You won't want to miss a minute of this exciting program for April!
