The Cinema Organ Society is proud to present two of the foremost exponents of the ‘King of Instruments’ in contrasting concerts, on the mighty Troxy Wurlitzer pipe organ.
We are delighted to welcome British virtuoso Thomas Trotter who is the Birmingham City Organist, as well as organist at St. Margaret’s Church and Westminster Abbey. Thomas will bring a unique classical and orchestral perspective to the Wurlitzer during the afternoon concert.
In the evening we welcome back Simon Gledhill following his acclaimed concert finale to the 2017 RCO/COS Organ Forum. Simon is one of the star artists of the theatre organ world. In great demand for concerts in the UK and the USA, he is also regularly invited to perform in Europe and Australia. An evening of popular and light music is assured.
For those attending the concerts we are pleased to extend an invitation to attend the ‘in-between’ concert presentations.
Starting at 4.45pm these talks are free of charge.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first request basis.
