Stepping into the Torchlight

Stepping into the Torchlight

Composer and virtuoso pianist Andy Quin is planning a return to the organ stage after a break of many years.

Andy was following in the footsteps of his childhood hero Sidney Torch. Having started his musical career on the Christie organ of the Regal Edmonton and then writing for a music publisher for whom Torch had worked, Andy had put away the organ shoes to take up the baton and the score to pursue a hugely successful career as a composer for TV and Film. He even worked on a number of occasions with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Torch’s own band. However, unlike his hero, Andy never fell out of love with the organ, but with such a busy schedule and a young family, something had to give and unfortunately that was performing live. Andy never completely lost touch with organs and has recorded both pipe and electronic for film and TV, as well as making numerous broadcasts on The Organist Entertains.

Andy is now preparing concert material for a return to organ performance and will be available for booking in 2015.
