Sounds of the Summer

A limited number of tickets are now available for our ever popular annual ‘Sounds of the Summer’ event to be held at our Mixbury showrooms on Saturday 3rd May 2014 when Ian Tracey will be playing once again. The draft programme for the day is below.

Tickets are £10 per person; all of which goes to the Liverpool Cathedral organ appeal. As I am sure you will agree, this is tremendous value for money for such an event. As in previous years food and drink will be provided free of charge during the day. If you would like to request tickets, please contact us directly.

During the intervals, our increasing selection of sheet organ music from various publishers, including of course our own, will be available for purchase, as will our latest line in organ shoes. Jan and Bill Wolfenden will be selling items from their Liverpool Cathedral organ supporters stall.
