40th Anniversary

Posted: Saturday 1st November

Last month the Withernsea Organ Society celebrated their 40th Anniversary. The first of two special concerts was held on 7th October and given by two of their most popular artists, Chris Powell and Brett Wales. The second (on the 22nd) was by the wonderful Claudia Hirschfeld. Both occasions wowed an appreciative audience and the Committee were delighted that these artists were able to make the journey ‘up north’.

Margaret Read from the society has told us 'This was Claudia’s second visit to Withernsea and apparently when she mentioned this to someone they replied “no-one goes to Withernsea a second time”. It has to be said this is wrong as most of the artists come back time and time again!'

On both occasions fruit cake and sponge cakes were distributed, and commemorative pens. Next month two more artists play for them, Chiho and Jon, and the year ends with Andrew Nix.

40 years! – They must be doing something right, we hope it continues for many more to come.
