Andre Rieu Concert a HUGE success
The Littlehampton Concert Band put on a Viennese concert in the style of music legend Andre Rieu and the packed house at Littlehampton's Windmill Theatre loved every minute. The band played a variety of music including marches, waltzes and polkas and the crowd cheered and tapped their feet all the way through.
Conductor, Bob Haselip, admitted he did not play the violin but did perform the Carnival of Venice with the band on Flute. Other highlights included the Radetsky March, Rossini's Thievish Magpie overture, but best of all the Beautiful Blue Danube waltz.
It was a fantastic night and there are some great pictures, thanks to Nick Barnes for his photography. It was so good, we're going to have to do it again next year!
