Organ Recital Series to raise funds for historic Walker Organ at St Mary’s

08/02/2020

RECITALS UNFORTUNATELY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The St Mary’s Music Foundation holds concerts to raise money for music education work with local children, and also supports theorganproject.org which seeks to preserve the famous 125-year-old Walker organ in St Mary’s Church, Portsea, for the local community and future generations.

An Organ Recital Series is being held to support this project. Recitals will usually start at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of each month (unless otherwise stated), free entry, enjoy a glass of wine, donations gratefully received in aid of The Organ Project.

The recitalist in the organ loft is instantaneously projected onto a large screen, which makes for gripping viewing!

There will be regular organ recitals at St Mary’s Church during 2020, as follows:

Thu, 13 Feb 7:30pm David Oldfield
Thu, 12 Mar 7:30pm Philip Drew and David Hansell (Organ Duets)
Thu, 2 Apr 7:30pm Gary Sieling
Fri, 8 May 10:00am Brian Moles and Matt Dixon
Thu, 3 Sep 7:30pm George Richford
Thu, 1 Oct 7:30pm John Sharples

Further details will be made available closer to these dates.
