As the first and only Australian musician in history to live as a professional concert organist, Thomas Heywood is celebrated as "an acknowledged master" for his unique ability to make the greatest music of all time come alive on the King of Instruments. He has an ever-growing repertoire of over 5,000 works.
Touring annually around the world, the internationally acclaimed organ virtuoso enjoys an outstanding reputation as one of the world's finest concert organists.
His concert will features famous orchestral works by Vivaldi and Bach (in the Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29 the performer has to play nearly 4,000 notes in under 4 minutes)! There will also be two fabulous pieces by the French organist Alexandre Guilmant (celebrating the 175th anniversary of his birth) and some outrageous works by the Victorian virtuoso organist Scotson Clark along with Mendelssohn's immortal War March of the Priests and more!
Saturday 7th July at 8 pm
Tickets €12/€10 concession. Children U14 free
