Education Event, St. Margaret’s Topsham EX3 0HL

Saturday 7 October 2:30pm

We have invited Richard Godfrey the Diocesan Organs Advisor for Salisbury to give a talk, but more importantly on this occasion, he is the main mover in the Salisbury `Pipe-up` scheme which provides lessons etc for young players.   He will talk about the scheme, and we are hoping that this might inspire the Devon organists to get behind something similar here.
 
Richard may be able to bring one or two young players with him to entertain us after the talk.   In addition, we would welcome any of our local youngsters who are learning the organ to come along and perform, at whatever level they happen to be.

All are welcome.

Organiser: Andrew Millington
