AFTER two years of absence due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is now possible to resume the tradition of an annual young organists’ concert at St Michael’s Parish Church in Lyme Regis.
This will take place on Sunday, October 10 at 3pm, featuring the church’s wonderful Skrabl organ.
All eight organists are aged between 10 and 18. They are learning under the Salisbury Diocesan ‘PipeUp Scheme, which provides subsidies to pay for lessons.
PipeUp started some 15 years ago and has trained almost 50 new organists in Dorset and Wiltshire.
The music on October 10 will be wide ranging, from magnificent Bach to strange but fascinating modern compositions.
There will also be an interlude of piano duet music by Ravel, played by one of the students and her teacher.
