Grand Orgue, The Nineteenth Century Explored

Saturday 28 January 2012, from 2.00pm
Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church
235 Shaftesbury Ave, London WC2 8EP

Introduction
Following the success of the Organists Online Open House on 29 January 2011, Music in Bloomsbury (Philip Luke) and Organists Online (Philip Norman) invite all organists and other musicians to an afternoon and early evening of recitals, displays, and presentations.

 The theme of the event, Grand Orgue, The Nineteenth Century Explored, gives a panoramic view of the symphonic organ and its music. Apart from the recitals, each taking a closer look at the music of England, France, and Germany, and the presentations filling in the background to the period, there will be ongoing refreshments, displays of relevant material and sales of CDs and books, and a substantial buffet.

 The two Philips look forward to seeing you, and sharing an afternoon of fine performances, interesting viewpoints, and tasty food.
