Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue in Chicago is where Dr John W. W. Sherer has been the Organist and Director of Music since 1996 and where 2,000 people worship each Sunday.

 

USA Today recently picked Fourth Presbyterian Church as one of top ten places in America to be “enthralled by heavenly music.”

 

The church has a 126-rank Aeolian-Skinner organ and nine choirs and instrumental groups including The Morning Choir, a twenty-six voice professional ensemble and Tower Brass, a professional octet. Dr. Sherer manages an active concert series at the church with over eighty events each year.

 

The Morning Choir and Dr. Sherer were in the film 'My Best Friend’s Wedding' the wedding being at The Fourth Presbyterian Church.

 

In addition to his work at Fourth Presbyterian Church he is a frequent guest conductor with the Chicago Chamber Orchestra, has done numerous lectures and clinics on church music and is a published author and composer.

 

Dr Sherer will be performing an all-American programme at St Chad's Cathedral Birmingham on Tuesday 21st June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5/£3

 

Do come along. A chance to hear one of the finest instruments in the Midlands played by a top organist, and for just a fiver!

 

I heard John play at Wombourne last Tuesday - 'stunning' just about sums it all up!!

 

Come and hear for yourself!

 

Very best wishes,

Paul

Fabulous programme Ian!

I'm at Symphony Hall all day Saturday, playing for degree ceremonies, but just might make it if I have the energy left after two recitals and two Widors on the mechanical console!

Vierne played at Tenbury in the 1920s, I think - Michael Hart has newspaper cuttings from the time.

Symphony 3 sounds amazing on that organ - I did it there in 2009...

Dear Friends,

 

This is just to let you know that we are holding one of our concerts here, at The Old Chapel on Saturday July 23rd at 7.15.p.m, finishing at approximately 9.15.p.m. I should say that there is no charge for admission, but to cover costs (largely organ tuning) we hope for a donation of £7.00. As usual Gill will provide light refreshments. For those who have not been before our address is: The Old Chapel, Trelogan, Holywell, Flintshire, CH8 9BD. We live halfway between Holywell and Prestatyn. There are frequent trains to Prestatyn, but few buses to Trelogan. Sometimes, depending on numbers we can pick people up from Prestatyn Station. There is a taxi rank there,too! If you are coming by car, parking is 200 yds beyond our house - plenty of space!

 

On this occasion I will play a programme consisting entirely of organ music and will include some music which you are unlikely to have heard before, in addition to well know favourites.

 

For space reasons, we are able to welcome a maximum of 30 people, so would appreciate it very much if you can telephone 01745 561072 if you wish to attend. If you are unable to attend, we very much hope that will be able to pass this information on to others who might be interested.

 

We hope very much that we shall have the pleasure of seeing you, together with friends or spouses on July 23rd.

 

With regards and all good wishes from

 

Roger & Gill Fisher

Would it be a good idea for forum members to advertise here recitals they are giving in the near future so that others in their area (or even beyond) could come along to offer support and maybe even raise a glass or two afterwards? Just a thought.....

 

Peter

Jennifer Bate is playing at Christchurch Priory this evening at 7.30pm, admission £6. The programme is:

 

Prelude and Fugue in C - GEORG BOHM (1661-1733)

Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (BWV 645) - J. S. BACH (1685-1750)

Prelude and Fugue in D minor (BWV 539) - J. S. BACH (1685-1750)

Fantasie-Impromptu - WALTER G. ALCOCK (1861-1947)

Fantasia and Fugue on B.A.C.H - FRANZ LISZT (1811-1886)

March on a theme of Handel - ALEXANDRE GUILMANT (1837-1911)

Prélude et Fugue sur le nom d’Alain - MAURICE DURUFLÉ (1902-1986)

Le Jardin Suspendu - JEHAN ALAIN (1911-1940)

Étude Symphonique - MARCO ENRICO BOSSI (1861-1925)

 

It promises to be a superb concert. I'd never heard the Alcock Fantaisie-Impromptu before, but I heard Margaret Phillips play it at Westminster Abbey last night, and will hear Jennifer Bate play it tonight. Being one of Alcock's major anniversaries helps, I guess!

Ian, this looks to be a really beautiful organ - plenty of colour. A good programme, too (although I would prefer not to hear the first and last pieces !) I am sorry that I cannot attend, but I hope that it goes really well.

... (although I would prefer not to hear the first and last pieces !)

I know what you mean, Sean, but he who pays the piper...

 

The church rarely holds organ recitals and asked for 'popular' pieces. So I deliberately chose a programme one seldom hears these days: the kind of selection Noel Rawsthorne would play, especially for those unused to organ music, and which first drew me to the organ in the '80s. The Widor was a request; two couples in the audience were celebrating wedding anniversaries. Actually, I've never played BWV565 in a public recital (what a good opener it is!) and rarely programme the Widor without other movements from the same symphony. It all hung together rather well and a large, varied audience went away happy, humming tunes and saying how good it was to hear their organ "in its own right" rather than during the liturgy. Perhaps we're so afraid of giving the punters what they want sometimes, we end up alienating them?

I concur fully with your thoughts, Ian. I am glad that so many people enjoyed themselves. I, too, have never played BWV565 in a public recital - just at a funeral....in the middle, in fact.... A most unusual service indeed.
