Peter Clark Posted May 19, 2007 Share Posted May 19, 2007 We are going to Blackpool this year (cheap holiday at sister's) and as usual I try to get to play some organs. The one I really wanted to play, in the Sacred Heart, was being renovated while I was there last so I never got to play it though I did play one in St John Vianney church wich was an average parish intrument needing work (!) Now my two questions: 1) What are the must see/play organs in the area? I read of a Copeman Hart which can be played either as a traditional instrument (er... without the pipes! ) or at the flick of a switch can become a theatre organ. Anyway, if anybody has any recommendations please let me know. 2) The Blackpool Tower Organ - has anybody played this? I suppose it is something I'd like to say I had done, but according to the website they want £200 for an hour with £50 more for a recording option (which I can't really afford anyway!). Is this worth the money - would I have enough time to get to know the instrument well enough to make a worthwhile recording (which I assume would only last about 10 minutes)? (editing: just loked up the website: http://www.theblackpooltower.co.uk/ballroo...nexperience.htm ) Thanks, looking forward to your thoughts. Man U or Chelsea?
