Our 35th annual organ concert, which this year was to see the welcome return of Ian Tracey, has, like so many other events, had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.
Professor Ian Tracey is one of Britain's best known and most widely respected musicians, having been organist at the monumental Anglican Cathedral in his home town of Liverpool for over 30 years. His performances there on the famous 'Willis' organ — the largest in the UK — have thrilled the instrument's thousands of fans around the world and met with praise from the critics. He holds several other official positions and combines them with a busy freelance career as a recitalist and conductor.
In the absence of his concert, you can always listen to his CDs. For more information, click here.
