Possible exchange with Tonga in 2019

The Melodians has been in discussion with the Tongan High Commission about a possible exchange with a brass band from Tonga in 2019.  The idea came about from a previous player with the Melodians – Lady Berkeley (or Dido as we know her), when she visited Tonga this year.  She was overwhelmed by the welcome she received from the Tongan people and delighted by the many creative and talented people she met.  She came back to the UK with one idea on her mind – to put forward a proposal for an exchange with a Tongan group to Terry Noel for him to take forward.  If funding can be raised, the Melodians could be visiting Tonga in 2019 to perform and the Queen Salote College Brass Band would come to the UK.

Viliami Lolohea, the First Secretary of the High Commission of the Kingdom of Tonga came to our rehearsal last night in order to meet us and start the discussions.

As I was not at the front this is the best that I could manage.  Full recording of Melodians performance and videos of some of the Cat Walks.  Event took place in Ecclestone Place near Victoria.

Combination of those fantastic tracks Bohemian Rhapsody and Voodoo Ray.

London Fashion Week – Isa Arfen Show

The London Fashion Week – Isa Arfen Show this week was fantastic, the designs were great and the response from the audience was tremendous.  Here is a small section of the event which shows part of the Cat Walk with the Melodians clearly seen playing at the back of the hall.  A great experience for the Melodians.  No logos were allowed.
