Clubs and Societies Report: Eastbourne Organ and Keyboard Club

DESPITE the seasonal weather and illness, the club had a good attendance for its very enjoyable Christmas concert.

Artiste James Goff, in true The Show Must Go On fashion arrived in time to play despite having been delayed on the M25. So a good end to a successful year.

Ben Scott-Hyde, a newcomer to the organ/keyboard music circuit opened the 2011 season with a lively January concert.

Georgina, the booking secretary has already arranged for a wide range of musicians to play this years concerts, and the February 1 concert is no exception when Ian House, a talented keyboard and organist who has played nationally and in America will be entertaining us.

The concert as always is open to the general public so if you want a lift from those winter blues, what better way than an evening of live music. We may be a club but the musicians are all professional. It is a two hour show with video close up facility, superb for watching the musician’s handiwork, with full stage lighting, interval, refreshments, raffle, lottery ticket prizes, and more.

Why not join us next Tuesday? You will be most welcome and there is no need to be a member. The club, which has been going since 1976 has always appreciated the support of the many visitors especially in these unsettled times.

For further concerts or information ring Charles on 762411.

The February 1 meeting is at Westham Village Hall in Peelings Lane from 7.30pm. Admission is £6 or £4 for members and this includes refreshments.
