Nigel Ogden

Saturday 5th May 2018, 2.30-4.00pm

A concert of popular and light classical music by Nigel Ogden, tickets on the door, £10 Adults, concessions £8, to include interval refreshments.

Although a our Church organ has an early 18th century Baroque case, the Hill, Norman and Beard console was clearly influenced by theatre and cinema organ trends when installed in the 1920s, and the range of pipes provide opportunities for sounds that rarely get heard on a Sunday. Nigel Ogden, presenter of Radio 2's 'The Organist Entertains' will be drawing on some of the more theatrical possibilities the organ offers, and giving free reign to it's cinematic style at the afternoon concert.

Nigel Ogden gave the last concert on the Bishop Street Organ before it had a major renovation over the course of 2016. We are looking forward with eager anticipation to hear what can be done now he has the full range of stops at his disposal. With the last broadcast of 'The Organist Entertains' set for May 8th, this is likely to be the last concert Nigel gives whilst still at the helm of the Radio 2 show he has presented for 38 years.

The photo shows Nigel Ogden at Bishop Street Methodist Church in May 2016, before the console was moved down to the floor of the Church.
