Wolverhampton Civic Hall 75th Anniversary Celebrations.

THE ORGAN, THE DANCEBAND AND ME :- Saturday the 18th May 2013

The New Foxtrot Serenaders, a seven piece dance band, have been recreating the music from the first half of the 20th century since 1997. Their varied repertoire includes Trad Jazz, Ragtime, Charlestons and famous radio signature tunes. Recently they have dedicated their concerts to well known artistes and composers of the time, including some of the great songwriters from the American Songbook, such as Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and Hoagy Carmichael. Their concerts often have a theme – with this year’s theme being ‘Strictly Gershwin’ a celebration of those ‘Swonderful’ song writing brothers George and Ira.

The New Foxtrot Serenaders sometimes invite guest singers and musicians to perform with them and combine concerts with another group of singers or musicians to attract a whole new audience. For the 75th Anniversary of the Civic Hall they will be sharing this concert at the Civic Hall Wolverhampton with the organist, David Ivory, who is in great demand for his recitals of popular 'classics' and transcriptions, played on church and town hall organs as well as his light and popular musical repertoire played on cinema organs.

ALSO

Joe Marsh and Cameron Lloyd at the Organ and Damon Willetts at the Steinway Grand Piano.

Doors Open 1.30.pm for 2.00pm Start
Tickets £6.50 on the door or from the Midland Box Office
0870 320 7000

CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF THE THEATRE ORGAN CLUB

Weds 12th June 2013. 14:00 -16:30
Joe Marsh, Damon Willets, Cameron Lloyd and David Ivory will be in concert on the original 1939 Wurlitzer of the Opera House, Blackpool to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Theatre Organ Club (http://www.theatreorganclub.co.uk/index.htm).
Abit about the organists :-

JOE MARSH has performed in concerts throughout the British isles as well as the United States. He has a number of recordings to his credit and has been heard on the BBC radio programme "The Organist Entertains" as well as Radio Hilversum in Holland. He has composed a selection of music some of which has been published.

DAMON WILLETS first began playing the Piano at the age of six and attained grade six in the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music examinations under the instruction of Gladys Walker and also Winston Flavell. With this aptitude together with an love of popular, tuneful music, he found himself much in demand as a hotel pianist from the age of seventeen.
Damon has been on the organ circuit for several years now and is the proud owner of the Ex - Granada Grantham 3/5 Compton organ.

CAMERON LLOYD became addicted to the Theatre Organ at the age of eleven after a paying a visit to the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool. He was encouraged by the City Organist, Steve Tovey, who permitted Cameron to practice on his electronic organ at home in addition to the 4/57 Compton organ at Wolverhampton Civic Hall. Cameron has been a full-time organist for over 10 years, performing primarily for Ballroom and Sequence dancing as well as concerts. He was delighted to play at the Odeon Leicester Square in 2005 and has played for public dancing at the Tower Ballroom, Empress Ballroom, and Spanish hall in Blackpool on numerous occasions and is also resident organist at Bilston Town Hall playing the Compton installed there each and every Thursday.

DAVID IVORY was taught by John Fear and was organist of St Marys Church, Bury St Edmunds. During the 1970s he was organist of the Rex cinema, Stratford. It was here Davids concert career started out, and he was soon playing for concerts in venues across the UK, including the Granada Cinemas. Since the early 80's, David has been resident organist at the Mechanical Music Museum in Cotton, Suffolk, where he plays the 2/11 Wurlitzer, which originated from the Leicester Square theatre, several times per week. David's well defined playing style continues to be in demand today all over the country.

Come along and indulge in an afternoon of wonderful music performed by four fine and entertaining organists in the only publicly playing original Wurlitzer installation in a cinema/theatre in the UK .

Tickets are £5 from Blackpool Winter-Gardens box office, or you can book online from ticketmaster (http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/event/1F004A4BACED60E5?artistid=1411022&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=52)
