Open forum for organists and would-be organists
Mon 18 June 2018 at 19:30 Holy Trinity Church, Rayleigh, SS6 8BB

This evening's event is designed to provide help, encouragement and practical hands on advice in an informal atmosphere on many aspects of playing the organ, such as transferring from piano to organ; choosing repertoire; service playing; technical problems; handling the instrument itself; practising; etc, etc. James and John will put you on the right track and provide answers (hopefully!) to all those questions you meant to ask but never have.
Please arrive any time after 7 p.m. for a prompt start at 7.30 p.m. There will be a break for tea/coffee during the evening and we aim to finish about 9.30p.m.
Cost: Adults £7.50 or £9 for non RSCM members. *School pupils £3.
