The world renowned organist Professor Ian Tracey of Liverpool Cathedral and the City Organist of Liverpool, is giving a recital at St Aidan’s Parish Church, Station Road, Bamber Bridge on Saturday 4 September at 7pm.


He’s returning to give a concert at St Aidan’s some 21 years after his last visit.

This time he will be playing on an instrument he knows very well, as for 18 years it was the west end organ in Liverpool Cathedral.

It is a large 67 stop digital organ built by Phoenix Organs that St Aidan’s church acquired last summer.

Ian’s concert programme includes works by JS Bach, Flor Peeters, Susato, Boellman, Dvorak, Pachelbel, Haydn and Bossi. Come along to hear a musical maestro! Entrance on the night is a donation of £10 towards church funds.

Future organ recitals are at St Leonard’s Parish Church, Walton-le-Dale on Saturday 2 October at 7pm featuring John Robinson, the superb organist at Blackburn Cathedral; and at St Aidan’s, Bamber Bridge on Saturday 6 November at 7pm featuring the brilliant young organist Joshua Stephens.
