Chris Stanbury 12th Dec 2023

Chris played the Yamaha ELS-02X Stagea organ, fully integrating its many orchestral sounds. He entertained with an extensive mix of pieces and a smattering of festive ones, perhaps not as many as there may have been, the audience not too excited about Christmas yet, but then it was only the 12th of December. There was much to listen to, music and humorous commentary. The pieces played drew enthusiastic audience applause and some to their feet cheering for an encore – Thunderbirds are go.
