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
Dirk gave us a truly fantastic concert on May 16th. The hall was packed and included 35 visitors. He soon had the audience singing and clapping along with the music. He played a wide range of music all in his very individual style. Included was his own composition “Lugano” as well as his take on “Falling in Love with You” which went into the music charts in Scandinavia. There was a delightful medley of Operatic music, a Circus related medley and so much more. It was fascinating to see him change from full volume Rock and Pop to the most incredibly sensitive touch of a slow ballad. Such was his rapport with the audience that he played an encore for a full 15 minutes. A really memorable evening for all of us.
Our June concert features “Britain’s Got Talent” Finalist Jean Martyn and takes place on Tuesday 20th June, starting at 7.30 pm in St. Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. 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 .
