The Southbank Centre

The Southbank Centre's 2017/18 International Organ Series comes to a close with an exciting concert featuring William Whitehead on Tuesday 24 April. For the last few years, William has been adding new commissions to Bach's incomplete Orgelbüchlein, and this concert is the culmination of that project, with these new works featuring alongside classics from Bruhns, Schumann and Parry, and ending with Liszt's monumental Fantasia and Fugue on 'Ad nos, ad salutarem undam'. You can find all the details about the concert online here.

Organ festival
Saturday 2 June 2018

St John’s are organising an organ festival on
Saturday 2 June 2018 (10am-5pm).

The Morning Session is a gentle introduction to the organ for those who have reached at least Grade 5 standard on the piano but who have never played the organ or who have just started playing. The Afternoon Session is for those who can already play the organ. Whatever your level, just choose a piece or pieces that you enjoy playing and come along and perform them.

The festival will conclude with a short recital by Geoffrey Hobbs, the organist of St. John's and the organiser of the festival.

If you are interested in participating in either session, please email for an application form. This form must be returned by 30th April at the latest.
