We’re delighted to announce that John will be giving an organ recital on the Ingram. This will be the first public performance of the organ!
John makes no claim to being a cinema organist, but regularly includes some lighter music in his recitals in the Usher Hall and so is prepared to have a go!
John was friendly with the late Mike Thomson of Aberdeen, who was a skilled cinema organist, and who wrote and brilliantly arranged a great deal of lighter music, some of which will certainly feature in his recital. This will include Scottish dances such as the strathspey Whirly Granny, marches, and a brilliant Tribute to Busby Berkeley. Music by Arthur Sullivan and Albert Ketèlbey is also likely to feature.
He is looking forward to putting the versatile Ingram organ through its paces!
