The Woodhall Spa & District Organ Society has been in existence for over 25 years, to promote and encourage interest in electronic and theatre organs, both from the playing and listening viewpoint, and generally promote the Woodhall Spa & District Organ Society for the benefit of its members and guests. To widen our appeal we now promote our concerts under the name of "MUSIC FOR WOODHALL".
We hold monthly concerts given by some of the top organists from this country and abroad. They are held on the third Tuesday of the month in St Peters Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa. Lincs LN10 6ST
We actively encourage members of the public to come along to our concerts, to join in with what we know is a friendly relaxing atmosphere, where we hope they will all enjoy the music. St Peters Hall can seat up to 140 people and we currently have audience figures varying between 70 and 100 at each concert. We have a membership of over 80 people.
We have the use of a fully equipped kitchen to allow us to provide a wide range of refreshments at our concerts.
Our stage has a remotely controlled colour lighting system. Closed Circuit Colour Television cameras allow the audience to see close up views of both the keyboard and pedal board via a large screen projection system.
Comfortable seating completes the experience of a relaxing and enjoyable evening while listening to some of the top artistes available.
Our May Concert
Ryan Edwards was the artist for our May concert. He played us his great mix of light classics, jazz, show music etc. He opened with the Overture to Light Cavalry by Suppe and there followed one delight after another. There was his beautiful rendering of Elgar's Nimrod, his version of the George Fleury classic "Cocamba" with its virtuoso foot pedal solo. "Bring Him Home" from "Les Miserables" was a new addition to the programme. The Overture to "Zampa" stands out as it demonstrates Ryans gift for brilliant orchestral registrations on the EL900. Ryan's concert concluded with a spectacular perfromance of music from "Riverdance" which he then topped with his encore performance of "Nessun Dorma".
Next month we have Mark Thompson, to entertain us. The concert takes place on Tuesday evening 19th June at St Peter's Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST and starts at 7.30 pm. Admission for visitors is £7.00. Further information is available from the Chairman Philip Groves on 01526 353225.
