players. This repertoire is more in the Continental style and features
arrangements from the 1920s and 1930s. The sound is intimate and rich and
the playing is always stylish and of the highest quality. Repertoire
includes Emmerich Kalman, Franz Lehar, Eric Coates and much more.

This stylish Orchestra plays evocative arrangements of sultry tango's as well as featuring light, dizzy classics from the 1950s such as "High Heels" and those delicious 'modern' arrangements of Fred Hartley.
