FOR FREE LUNCHTIME RECITALS
| There’s an exciting free series of organ music to accompany your lunchbreak every Monday at 1.05pm in Leeds Town Hall.
Leeds Lunchtime Organ Music welcomes a wide range of exciting players to share music from across the globe performed on Europe’s largest three-manual organ. From possibly its youngest ever recitalist, the prizewinning Paul Greally who has just completed his GCSEs, to well-known musicians from across the country.
City Organist Emeritus, Simon Lindley, returns to give a very welcome solo recital as well as hosting visits from violinist and leader of the Orchestra of Opera North, David Greed, and operatic tenor Ben Thapa. Phillip McCann returns as guest soloist on cornet with a new group to the series – the band of Salford University, one of the leading brass band centres in the country. BBC Radio 2’s dazzling Theatre Organist Nigel Ogden makes a welcome return, as well as Leeds’ own international recitalist Graham Barber.
This season Leeds Lunchtime Organ Music has a huge range of music from as far afield as Nigeria, Hungary, Russia and Argentina, as well as some great British repertoire. A wonderful opportunity for all to hear music weekly for free performed on the spectacular organ of Leeds Town Hall, at the very heart of the city.
