Our second Musical Bite of the season featured the Willis organ. It was played by three organists during the morning - they each took two turns of 20 minutes so filled the 2 hours with a variety of pieces. Sue Noon is the deputy head of St Mary & St Giles school, and has played the organ often, Rhona Sayer was less familiar with the Willis though had tried it before the day and Roger Windmill had played it before as well. We had asked them to play music to accompany conversation and they were able to show how a a good choice of sacred music, light classics and favourite tunes could brighten the morning for those who attended.
The refreshment team was kept busy all morning and as a result we raised £143.51 for the organ fund. A big thank you goes to Sue Noon, Rhona Sayer and Roger Windmill for playing the organ and to the organ fund team.
Our next Musical Bite is on 8th December and will provide a golden opportunity for any local musician who has a piece they'd like to perform to play informally for an appreciative coffee morning audience. You could play an exam piece for an upcoming grade or polish up that piece you promised yourself to perform. We’re looking for groups and soloists of all ages, so this is your chance to have some fun playing music with your friends or performing a solo. The 3 manual Willis organ will be available for organ scholars to play as will the baby grand piano.
