Derrick Matthews: April 2018
This year, on Wednesday 16th May at 7.30pm, we are delighted to again welcome Dr Joseph Nolan, described as 'one of the world's leading organists' by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Joseph enthralled our audience with his brilliant virtuosic playing when he previously performed here in 2008. Formerly of Her Majesty's Chapels Royal', St James' Palace, Joseph accepted the position of Organist and Master of the Choristers at St George's Cathedral in Perth, Australia in 2008.
Dr Nolan has given performances in prominent venues such as Buckingham Palace, Sydney Opera House, St Paul's Cathedral and Notre Dame Paris. Dr Nolan is also recognised as arguably the world's leading interpreter of the complete works of Charles Marie Widor which he has recorded for Signum records UK utilising the finest French organs that Widor himself played.
On the evening of the concert, the organ console will be placed on the front central dais. This, together with a large double video display and excellent sound ensures that everyone can hear and see comfortably without obstruction.
Entrance at the door is £12.00, but by ordering in advance the cost is only £10.00 ( students entrance is free).The simplest way to obtain tickets in advance is to complete the attached booking form by clicking here and post it with your cheque as directed.
