Village Organists Workshop, Saturday 29th September 2018 (11:00 – 16:00)
St Kentigern’s Church, Church Lane, Crosthwaite, Keswick CA12 5QG

This event, run in association with the Royal College of Organists, will be of interest to all those working in small churches who would like to access support, gain confidence or just explore a larger instrument than usual. St Kentigern's has a fine 3-manual organ which is one of the largest in Cumbria. We also welcome pianists who might like to try the organ. The class is open to all: experienced organists, pianists who find themselves helping on a Sunday, young and old. The morning session will include questions and answers: no question too great or too small!

The day will be led by Tom Bell (RCO Regional Director for the North of England, North Wales and the Isle of Man), with a rough timetable as follows:

Morning session: A presentation and talk on the RCO's Certificate of Associate Membership (CAM) followed by discussion time. Lunch: Not provided: please bring a packed lunch. There will be tea/coffee etc available)
Afternoon session: Practical class for up to eight players (all levels; free choice of repertoire/topic). Anyone attending in the morning is welcome to remain as an observer.

The basic fee for the whole day is £15 for CSO/RCO Members and £20 for non-members. For anyone who wishes to play in the afternoon class rather than observe, the fee for the day is £20 for members and £25 for non-members.
