Norwich church resounds to heavenly music Norwich Organists 1

Four teenage organists recently performed at St Peter Mancroft church in an event organised by Norfolk Organists' Association.

The Norfolk Organists’ Association has presented performance opportunities for young organists for several years, most recently to those in their 20s. This year the association decided to widen the scope and offer a platform to teenage organists. The event came to fruition on Saturday 9 August 2014 when four talented lads (girls performed for us last year) played a composite recital on the fine Collins organ at St Peter Mancroft in Norwich. 
The organists were: Luke Lindsey, Harry Sullivan, Sam Aldersey-Williams and George Jefford.
Playing infront of over 80 people the performances were exciting, sensitive and stylistic and held the attention of the audience throughout, at the conclusion all four organists were presented with music tokens and received ecstatic applause.

Special thanks are due to Julian Haggett, organist of St Peter Mancroft, for making the church and the Collins organ available and teaching two of the students, and to Lawrence Tao, organist at Gresham’s, who tutored the other two students.

The Norfolk Organists’ Association is committed to providing further opportunities for young people on a regular basis and encouraging future generations to take up the instrument. If you would like to become a member of the Norfolk Organists’ Association please see our website for further details - You do not have to be an organist to join!
