Popular lunchtime concerts with John Kitchen
Monday 19 June 2017
Join City Organist John Kitchen for his popular lunchtime concerts on the world renowned Usher Hall organ with its magnificent sound. Whether performing organ classics, adapting classical and other music or playing audience requests, John's inimitable performances and conversation will delight.
Monday 5 June at 1.10pm
This programme of variations will include 17th- and 18th-century works by Sweelinck, Pachelbel and Bach (the Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor) as well as more recent variations by the Dutch composer Feike Asma, and Denis Bédard’s Variations sur Kelvingrove.

John and friends
John will be joined by Sally Carr (soprano) and Katherine Rutherford (mezzo soprano). Sally will perform songs by Handel and Hugo Wolf, and Katherine will sing three of the little-known but beautiful Bible Songs by Stanford. There will also be some organ solos.
Monday 19 June at 1.10pm
Light music on the organ
Featured in this unusual programme will be music in lighter style, specifically written for the organ, by the late Mike Thomson, for many years associated with St Machar’s Cathedral, Aberdeen, but who was also a theatre organist. His pieces will include the stirring Scots March, Tullich to Inverey and the catchy strathspey Whirly-Granny, as well as a quick march On the square and the evocative Parc de Paris.
The next Get Organised concerts are on Mondays 11, 18 and 25 September.
Get here early: tends to be a queue of those booking on the day!
