ALTON ORGAN SOCIETY

(Founded 1967)

over 50 years of organ concerts


Patrons:  DR David Hill, DR francis jackson CBE and

Dame Gillian Weir DBE

 

Katherine Dienes Williams thrilled the audience with an action packed organ concert on Tuesday 6 Feb. She opened her concert with César Franck’s Choral No 3 and remarked that it was at St Lawrence Church that she first mastered this piece under the tutelage of Dame Gillian Weir. She ended her comprehensive concert in style playing Paul Spicer’s “Kiwi fireworks” (Five variations on “God defend New Zealand”). In case we didn’t know the New Zealand National Anthem Katherine sang it to the audience before launching this wonderfully exciting piece. You’ve guessed, Katherine was born in New Zealand!


Next month we welcome back David Halls (Salisbury Cathedral) when he performs on Tuesday 6 March. His programme can be viewed here.
