We are a collection of people who enjoy live music - listening to it or making it. We meet every month at the Cyprus Road Hall, Burgess Hill, West Sussex to hear a visiting professional play a two-hour live music show on the electronic organ. If you have never heard an electronic organ, you will not realise what a variety of music can be created using it. One of the professionals refers to his instrument as a 'digital orchestra', and this is a very good description. Music can be made in many different styles, recreating famous big-band sounds, for example, marching bands, orchestras, Mantovani-type strings, small jazz groups, theatre organ, and even classical organ - the list is endless and the variety is enormous.
In addition to the monthly concerts there is a special Extravaganza Concert each year at the Martletts Hall when it is hoped to 'spread the word' to those who may have not yet come across the Club, or indeed the music. This annual event has enjoyed enormous success so far. If you are interested in making music, there are also opportunities to talk to like-minded individuals and to join in with the informal get-togethers at members' houses.
The Club has been in existence for a number of years now, founded in September 1991 by the late (sadly missed) Dave Birchmore and his wife, Rosalie. It has always been enthusiastically run by the founders and the Committee, and well supported by all the members and friends.
The club usually meets on the third Friday of the month at 7.15pm
Members admission: Included in subscription
