Aaron Hawthorne – Online Concert
April 18 @ 2:30 pmFree
The NETOA are pleased to announce the welcome return of Arron Hawthorne with an ONLINE concert Sunday 18th April 2:30pm Live on FaceBook (North East Theatre Organ Association).
Due to Covid restrictions this is an online concert, public cannot be admitted to this concert.
Aaron hails from Motherwell and now lives in Glasgow, Scotland. He has a degree in music from the University of Glasgow, and is Principal Organist at St Bride’s Roman Catholic Church in Cambuslang. He is one of the team of recitalists who perform daily lunchtime concerts on the Lewis organ in Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow.
With a particular interest in theatre organs, Aaron is heavily involved with the Scottish Cinema Organ Trust and is keen to promote the theatre organ to new audiences.
Following his 2019 performance at the American Theatre Organ Society’s annual convention in Rochester, New York, Aaron received the ultimate honour for a young organist by winning the international Young Theatre Organist of the Year competition, having won the UK title two years before. Only a few months later, Aaron was awarded the Ian Sutherland Award by the Cinema Organ Society, an award made directly to a player who displays outstanding talent and promise as a theatre organist.
Aaron is also acclaimed as a choral conductor, having conducted various ensembles, including a three year reign with the University of Glasgow Chamber Choir.
This is a free to view concert, however if you would like to support the efforts of the NETOA donations can be made via our website www.netoa.org.uk
