The 16th Autumn series of theatre organ concerts at Rye presented by the Friends of Rye Wurlitzer starts with real vengeance not in the sinister sense - simply, musically stunning.
Sunday September 27th sees not one but three events in under 12 hours.
Internationally acclaimed Mr Wurlitzer - Len Rawle returns to Rye to assist in all three performances.
For those who like to know the finer points of playing, theatre organ techniques and registrations can we suggest the small intimate Masterclass with Len from 8.30am to 10.00am. The session includes class notes and the opportunity to extend what's been discussed with toast and jam afterwards. This session is £5.00 per person.
The next event is FREE. It's the ever popular Community Songs of Praise. 16, yes 16 roof raising hymns to be sung in just 75 minutes. This special event starts at 11am with a guest choir of local songsters and students from Rye College. Len Rawle at the Wurlitzer and Lois Benton having control of the baton. Everybody is welcome. Tea and Coffee available at the beginning . There is a silver collection at the end for those who wish to make a small donation .
Last but not least at 2.30pm. The award winning Brighton & Hove City Brass Band. A 35 strong mass of smart uniforms and musical splendour. Len will once again rise from the pit and entertain on the Wurlitzer in his own special way, making this double bill an event not to be missed. Doors open at 1.30pm. Comfy tiered seating and cushions await you all. Free parking. Level Access for the disabled. New sparkling toilets. Raffle and gift stall - what more could you want?! Ticket price of £6.25 includes tea, coffee and biscuits in the interval and are available on the door.
So there you have it, three events in 9 hours. Rye College, Love Lane, Rye, East Sussex is the place to be on Sunday 27th September. If you require further information please contact Richard Moore by email or telephone 01424 444058.
A warm welcome awaits you all.
