Concert Series and other Events
To raise money for the St James’ Organ Appeal
The New Organ
On Sunday 12th February we said goodbye to the 1974 electronic Heyligers organ which had served St James well since its installation in June 1974. It has gone to a good home in the Coimbra Music Conservatory.
In the second week of March we took delivery of our new Hauptwerk computerised organ that faithfully reproduces recordings of pipe organs from a wide range of locations. It was played at the Eucharist on March 12th.
We still need to raise a further €3,500 towards the cost of this new organ
The 1974 Heyligers Organ
The Hauptwerk Organ, also from the Netherlands
This new organ will not only improve the quality of music at divine services, but also open up opportunities for other musical performances, as it is a much more versatile and advanced instrument.
We continue to raise funds to pay off the loan (€3,500 to go) so the concert series and film evenings will continue.
Please tell friends and acquaintances and encourage them to come to these events.
