| Past Performances
Sunday 28th March at 3 pm St John The Baptist, Eversholt

The programme will be followed by a beginners' guide to the organ when I will demonstrate how the organ works and invite interested beginners – children and adults – to try for themselves, with a short piece of music of their own if they have one. There will be a video camera and screen so we can all see better
