New organ concert season to begin

The prestigious series of organ concerts played on the Father Willis organ in All Saints Church in Hastings Old Town begins on Monday July 11.

There will be eight concerts played by Cathedral organists or international performers, so audiences can expect that the music will be beautifully performed.

The first concert will be by Daniel Cook, sub-organist at Westminster Abbey. Prior to his appointment at the Abbey Daniel was organist and Master of the Choristers of St Davids Cathedral and Artistic Director of the St Davids Cathedral Festival. Under his direction the Cathedral Choir made several broadcasts and recordings for BBC Radio and Television, toured in Italy and performed with the BBC singers in the City of London Festival.

All the concerts begin at 7.30 pm, tickets available at the door for £8 and a season ticket costs £50. This is the 26th year that the concerts have taken place and further information may be obtained from Malcolm Lock on 0780 1068156. Malcolm is the resident organist of the Old Town Parishes who has now taken over the organisation of the series.
