Musical events support Watton church organ

A feast of three lunch-time music events in St Mary’s Church in Watton later this summer as part of a fund raising project for refurbishment of the church organ

Watton church Organ 1The first event is on Wednesday June 17, 2015 when Karen Harries will sing well-loved Gershwin songs accompanied by Jill Dobbs.   The programme will also feature St Mary’s own choir girl, Kelsey McTaggart and Mike Adcock on his vibraphone.

On Thursday July 30, 2015 the audience will enjoy listening to St Mary’s Ensemble playing jigs and slides together with a clog dance or two and there will be an opportunity for some audience participation in folk songs.

Rounding up the series on Thursday August 6, 2015 will be an entertaining programme with the Harmonettes who return for the third year to help raise funds.

All three events will start at 1.10pm and there will be lunchtime treats served after the music.  There will be no admission charge but everyone attending will be invited to make a donation to the organ fund raising appeal.

Gerry Foster, Vicar at St Mary’s Watton, said: “The organ in this church is used for at least three Sunday services each month as well as weddings, funerals and Civic Services.  We have a thriving church here which has benefited from when the building was re-ordered three years ago but there was not sufficient funding to do the organ as well.  While it plays very well now we know the planned refurbishment programme will enhance the sound and ensure the organ remains a key part of this church in the future.”
