ALTON ORGAN SOCIETY

(Founded 1967)

over 50 years of organ concerts


Patrons:  DR David Hill MBE, DR francis jackson CBE and

Dame Gillian Weir DBE

 

On Tuesday 8 January we welcomed back to Alton Dr David Hill MBE who gave a most exhilarating organ concert to the 70+ audience. Not only was his chosen programme designed for all tastes in music but his delivery was masterful. He opened his concert with Langlais Te Deum which, he claimed, he had to “re-learn” having last performed it when he was 15! I guess this set the scene for a truly professional performance of the highest standard punctuated with his well informed and anecdotal descriptions of each piece. This was a superb opening to the remaining organ concerts of the 2018/2019 Season. His programme can be viewed here.


Next month we welcome back after a long absence Roger Sayer (Temple Church, London) who will perform on Tuesday 5 February 2019. His programme can be viewed here.

Concerts start at 8.00 pm ending about 9.15 pm. Refreshments are available from 7.30 pm.
