The Bristol and Paris chapters of the Fantasy Orchestra came together in Paris at the end of April for three shows over one weekend.
Show #1: Jardin Villemin
On the bandstand, with a dozen or so Bristol players arriving hotfoot from the airport to join the orchestra for a lunchtime set.
Show #2: L’Albatros, Montreuil
An evening show, to a capacity audience, in the auditorium of an arts complex housed in the old Pathé movie studios.
