Lichfield Cathedral

We are honoured to have as our President Lichfield Cathedral Organist and Assistant Director of Music, Martyn Rawles. We are fortunate to also have Lichfield Cathedral's Director of Music Ben Lamb and his wife Cathy Lamb, Director of Outreach at Lichfield Cathedral School, as Honorary Members of our Association, and Assistant Organist at Lichfield Cathedral Nigel Argust as a member. We are grateful for the encouragement and support we receive from Lichfield Cathedral's Music Department, and in return we are always happy to assist in any way we can with publicising the concerts/organ recitals performed by both Lichfield Cathedral's own organists and guest recitalists on the historic Hill organ, photos of which grace our home page.

Young Persons' Cathedral Organ Day - Saturday 25th March 2017

The Young Persons' Cathedral Organ Day is jointly pesented by Lichfield Cathedral's Music Department and Lichfield & District Organists' Association, and is aimed at boys and girls aged between 10 and 14. A day for young musicians of all abilities to discover what Mozart called 'the King of Instruments'. Workshops, led by experienced teachers from Lichfield Cathedral School, Lichfield Cathedral, Excel Music Schools and members of Lichfield & District Organists' Association, comprise:

This unique opportunity for boys and girls to learn about, hear, and play the Cathedral's historic collection of instruments was held in 2013, 2014 and 2015, but the disruption to the Cathedral's activities caused by the rewiring has prevented us from holding the event in 2016. We are however grateful to the Cathedral for agreeing to accommodate the event again in 2017. The event commences at 9.15am till 12.30pm.
