The orchestra was saddened to hear of the recent death of John Denny. John had been a faithful member of the orchestra for 11 years, playing soprano saxophone. He also played accordion and played a solo in nearly every concert he appeared at. Mostly recently, he played a selection of his favourite accordion music at our Christmas concert in December of 2019. He was always quick to smile and had a quiet humour that soon would bring a smile to everyone he was talking to. But most of all, he will be remembered for his passion and energy for music and motor bikes. We were all very fond of John, and we will miss his friendship and music.
