The 2018/2019 Season of organ concerts has ended with a most competent performance of a wide variety of French and German music given by Ourania Gassiou. Her programme for Tuesday 7 May 2019 can be viewed here. The Society goes into recess now until the start of the 2019/2020 Season when James Tett (Organist & Violinist) opens the proceedings on Tuesday 1 October 2019. James is currently a student at the Royal College of Music and has already given an organ concert at Winchester Cathedral.


Next week we repeat the series of Lunchtime Organ Concerts given by local organists. John Purver opens the series on Thursday 16 May when he will play music by Edwards, Lemmens, Murrill, Langlais, Karg-Elert, Morricone, Schumann, Whitlock and Young. His programme can be viewed here. The concert starts at 1.10 pm (refreshments from 1230 to accompany your picnic lunch) and admission is free. There will be a retiring collection to cover expenses and donate towards the organ restoration fund.


We have just added a link to the Dutch Organ Society who have added this Society’s link to their website.


Concerts start at 8.00 pm ending about 9.15 pm. Refreshments are available from 7.30 pm. Admission is £10 at the door which includes programme.
