Dr. Palmer 1917-1996, responsible for the popular Palmer-Hughes Accordion Course, conducts his arrangement of the Sound of Music for accordion orchestra. He is a brilliant composer, arranger & conductor. I caught Dr. Palmer conducting several tunes in Chicago in 1992. The orchestra is called the Palmer Festival Orchestra which is made up of the fine University of Missouri-Kansas Accordion Ensemble, augmented today with the best performers from across the country. Joan Sommers is the director of the University Ensemble, but today is playing 1st chair with this orchestra. She is the very talented white haired lady conducting in her entry. Dr. Palmer is my idol as an educator.
