On Tuesday 1 May we welcomed for his first visit to the Society David Saint (St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham) who gave a truly inspiring and enjoyable organ concert. His well chosen programme gave something for everyone and, judging from comments of the audience, they loved David’s concert which was a truly professional performance. The climax to his programme was the challenging “Introduction, Passacaglia & Fugue” by Healey Willan which also brought to an end a most successful 2017/2018 Season of organ concerts. To recap David’s programme click here. We now take a break until the start of the 2018/2019 Season which starts on Tuesday 2 October 2018 when we see a return visit of Martin Baker (Westminster Cathedral). To bridge the gap we shall repeat the successful Lunchtime Organ Concerts starting on Thursday 21 June 2018. Will Nisbet will be performing music by Buxtehude, Bach, Stanley. Full details can be viewed here and downloaded from here.
