After welcoming remarks from the Lieutenant Governor, and the current and past WMCT presidents, Michael Bridge, 2021 WMCT Career Development Award recipient played a brief solo accordion recital. He included a “musical game,” challenging us to identify tunes from repertoire created around the time of the WMCT’s founding. We did well.
