St Bartholomew’s Church will be the venue for an exciting concert programme given by organist Jonathan Delbridge on Sunday October 8th at 3 pm. It was Mozart who first described the pipe organ as the ‘King of Instruments’. The organ at St Bartholomew’s was built by Rothwell and is widely regarded as one of the finest in the area. Jonathan’s programme will show off the diverse and varied colours available from the instrument by including the famous Dambusters March, Widor’s Toccata from Symphony No5 as well as pieces by Mendelssohn, JS Bach and even some Fats Waller.
Jonathan is based in Crewkerne where he runs a piano teaching business called JD Music Services. He is the organist at St Michaels and All Angels in Yeovil and also directs the South Somerset Community Choir and Ilminster Belles. He performs at venues throughout the UK including the Royal Albert Hall, York Minster and Hall for Cornwall. Tickets for the concert are £8 in advance from the LIC in Crewkerne town hall and will be £10 on the door. There is free admission for those aged 18 and under. The ticket price includes canapes and a bar will also be available.
