Concert at Shush

Wantage Concert Brass in action again....

Conducted by Gareth Coulson, they opened both the first and second sessions of a Concert arranged by the Twinning Committee, held in the novel( and very pleasant and impressive) 'Shush'  Night Club. A rather tight fit on the stage, but they managed!

The evening consisted of several entertainments by local singers,actors and the ever-popular Pandemonium group - but stars of the show were the German guests, who provided a fantastic demonstration of yodelling, whip cracking, and cow-bell ringing.....
