About Horsham Organ and Keyboard Society

 

We must be doing something right since this year we celebrated our 37 years and, if anything, the membership is just about holding steady which is more than many other clubs.   Maybe it's because there is always a warm friendly atmosphere on club nights and shown here is one of our Christmas concerts with Michael Wooldridge and drummer Phil Solomon giving some idea of how much trouble is taken each month to get things just so and, of course, a lot of thought is given before bookings are made. Look below and you will see the planned performers for next year, varied and always interesting. The icing on the cake at any Horsham concert is that just out of sight is a well stocked bar!  So if you do have a thirst then you can have a drink whilst enjoying the music!  As with most clubs, we are sure, the majority of the attending members are primarily interested in having a good musical evening provided once a month by a professional artist or artistes and that is fine.  We also arrange interesting outings to add a bit more spice to our club year. For example,  we have held numerous dinners at  the Singing Hills Golf Club in Sussex, where, if you did not know it already, there are two excellent theatre organs for listening to and sometimes playing. On this occasion it was a dinner dance with professional keyboard music provided. Then, for the last seven years we took a coach trip to Thursford, Norfolk where we enjoyed the fabulous Christmas Show that now has a far reaching reputation.  We have also taken a coach party  to the Musical Museum at Brentford for a Tour of the fabulous instruments there with afternoon Tea,  and then to see the Christmas Lights in Central London    So that's us ... why don't you come along and find out for yourself what a pleasant evening can be had?

The club usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm.

Subscription rate: £15 per annum per person and £4 at each of the concerts

Visitors: £7
