Blast Off! Dan Moult unleashes an explosion of organ sound
On Saturday 13th May Nottingham Cathedral will host Blast It! - an illuminating, myth-busting afternoon designed to introduce new players and interested listeners (teachers, parents, family) to the fascinating and accessible world of the organ.
This eye- and ear-opening introduction, arranged by the Royal College of Organists, is for anyone who thinks that the organ:
• couldn’t possibly be fun
• is only ever used to accompany hymns
• is only played by church musicians
• is too difficult to learn
• can’t be played by children.
Dan Moult, communicator, educator and organist par excellence, will blow away all these – and other – misconceptions and demonstrate some of the endless possibilities of this most versatile and rewarding instrument.
Blast Off! runs from 15:00 to 17:30 on Saturday 13 May at St Barnabas Cathedral, North Circus Street, Nottingham NG1 5AE.
People of all ages are welcome, whether players or non-players.
If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the organ then come along and prepare yourself for a multi-sensory challenge. There is no charge for young people aged 15 and under: to reserve a free place contact Robert Gower (email firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 05603 488231.
The charge for those aged 16 and over is £5. Places should be booked online at www.rco.org.uk/events.php?eventid=480
. While it will be possible to pay on the door, booking in advance enables the organisers to tailor the event to the numbers attending.
