Jake competed at the Victoria Accordion Festival last June both as soloist and with his brother, Joey, who played violin.
Jake played concert accordion pieces and placed 3rd against some pretty stiff competition. When playing duets with his brother, they placed first. As a duo they played new arrangements and adaptations by teacher Richard Tyce, consisting of a Beatles Medley ("Octopus Garden Salad"), a Russian Medely ("Russian Roulade ") and an Italian medley ("Misto Musicale").
Great job to both of you!
