Derrick Matthews: May 2018
Tonight, 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.
Tonight, 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, I look forward to welcoming you.
