Sunday 28th January 2018 at 11.30 am
St Mary Magdalene Church, Taunton

Organic Appetiser – Andrew Carter
The Pedal Ophicleide

The monthly Organic Appetisers are intended as a foretaste of the glory of our Father Willis organ after he has been fully renovated next year.  Following the morning service (and a suitable pause for coffee etc) one of the organists of St Mary Magdalene Church will present a short demonstration and talk about an aspect of the organ, and then play a short piece which particularly features this aspect of Father Willis.  To accompany the talk and demonstration (which lasts 15-20 minutes) a delicious canapé will be served, lovingly created by some of the culinary experts in the St Mary Magdalene choir.  This can thus all lead seamlessly into Sunday lunch…

Admission is free (including the canapés and a souvenir programme) and there will be a retiring collection for the organ renovation fund.
