Talented musician returns to Mid Norfolk church

Talented organist, Julian Haggett is returning to Watton to help St Mary’s Church which inspired and helped him in the early days of his musical career.

Julian HaggettJulian’s first interest in playing organ music began at 13 when he heard the powerful notes of the organ in St Mary’s Church as a chorister.  His interest in music continued through school and through attending evensong at St John’s College, Cambridge.

He went on to study music at Durham University where he was awarded an organ scholarship and then he took up the position of postgraduate organ scholar at Chichester Cathedral.

In 2009 Julian started his freelance career as a professional concert organist, private tutor and accompanist based at St Peter Mancroft Church in Norwich.  His concert work has led him to play internationally and he has travelled around the world from Holland to South Korea.

On Saturday September 19 he will be returning to the St Mary’s in Watton which was the church that gave him time for organ practice in the early days of his career. The event which starts at 7pm will be a chance to hear about his interesting career, to ask him questions and, of course, to hear him play the organ.

Tickets are just £10 each to hear this successful musician and the ticket price includes a glass of wine and cheese.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the organ refurbishment fund at St Mary’s and tickets are available from the church or by calling 01953 881252 and tickets are also available from Adcocks in the High Street in Watton.
