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 January Concert
Mike Hall gave us a very enjoyable concert. His very informal style of presentation went down extremely well with the audience. He played many styles of music from Big Band, ballads, jazz with a really great double bass performance on the pedals. He also played a march he composed himself some years ago, which was very pleasing to the ear. Apart from playing the Orla organ he also played some of his numbers on the Orla KX10 keyboard, which he plays with great gusto. He really loves that instrument and it shows. We all look forward to seeing him again in the future.
Next month in a change to our original programme we have Nicholas Martin BEM, who is standing in for Kevin Grunill. Kevin is recovering from successful surgery on his back. Nicholas is the Society's President and we are all looking forward to a brilliant concert. The concert takes place on Tuesday evening 20th February 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, or visit the Society's website www.woodhallspa-organ.co.uk .
PLEASE NOTE we have had to change our 20th February concert, which was due to be given by Kevin Grunill. Unfortunately Kevin is recovering from surgery so cannot be with us. Nicholas Martin, our Honorary President, has kindly agreed to stand in for Kevin.
