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 September Concert
John Bowdler was our artist for September and gave us a superb evening of music. He opened with the "Black and White Rag", quickly followed by Chopin's "Nocturne". There followed a great medley of Sambas, "The Dreaming Ballerina" by Franz Lambert, "Coronation Rag" and "Ballade Pour Adeline". The fiirst half concluded with a medley of marches including "Blaze Away". A selection of Polkas including "The Bluebell Polka" and "The Clarinet Polka" started the second half, which also inluded more Rags, a George Formby selection, "Moonlight Serenade" and much more. He concluded the evening with an energetic performance of "12th Street Rag". It was a wonderfully entertaining evening, leaving our audience asking for more.
Next month we welcome back Brett Wales, whose concert takes place on Tuesday evening 16th October, at St Peter's Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST, starting at 7.30 pm. Admission for visitors is £7.00. Further information is available from the Chairman Philip Groves on 01526 353225 or visit our website www.woodhallspa-organ.co.uk.
