SWANSEA ACCORDION ORCHESTRA

Welcomes you to our website!

The Orchestra consists of 12 accordions, including an electronic accordion, a saxophone, percussion and drums. We have been playing together since 1982 and we aim to promote awareness of the accordion throughout South Wales in particular and occasionally further afield

All our accordions are made by Fantini of Castelfidardo and were purchased from Allodi Accordions of Lewisham.
This allows us to maintain a consistency of sound.


The Orchestra


The orchestra's repertoire consists of more than 280 pieces that are wide-ranging and suitable for all types of occasion and venue.

The unique sound of the orchestra is very European. For fans of BBC’s "Strictly Come Dancing", Latin American samba, rumba, and paso doble rhythms feature prominently. French musette, German Bier Keller, Austrian, Italian, Spanish, Scottish and Irish music are also in evidence in our repertoire and many of these styles of music feature in our CDs ‘PotPourri’, ‘Tequila and other Cocktails’ and ‘Strictly Christmas’
