What have BOA members been up to recently?

Date

Venue

29 Apr 19 Broadway URC, Walsall

Quiz with Cheese & Wine
ALAN TAYLOR was our host for a social evening that included a organ music quiz.  There were excerpts from twenty pieces to identify from an audio CD.  They were either Fugues or last movements (Finals) of organ symphonies or sonatas - or in three cases both!  A good time was had by all present, but it was occasionally frustrating to know a piece so well but just not be able to put a name to it!
30 Mar 19 St Alban the Martyr

A G M and annual recital
NIGEL MORRIS was elected President, following the retirement of Mick Perrier after six years of valued service.  New Council Members ANNE ELLIS and ASHLEY WAGNER were welcomed.  The meeting was followed by a recital given by new Council Member Ashley, whose programme included music by Alain, Bach, Couperin, Coleridge-Taylor, Satie, Widor and Fournier's delightful Cloches.  A buffet lunch followed the recital.
20 Feb 19 St Chad's Cathedral

Fund-raising evening for our Leonard Gibbons Fund
This was an evening of spectacular organ-playing, as DANIEL MOULT (Head of Organ, RBC) and four of his BMus students (JOSHUA HUGHES, OLIVER NEALE, WILLIAM PEART and ASHLEY WAGNER) delighted us with a programme ranging from Buxtehude to DuruflĂ©.  Donations were received for the Leonard Gibbons Fund.
14 Jan 19
Little Blackwood

Annual Dinner
In a change from recent years, the association's Annual Dinner was held after rather than before Christmas - and at a restaurant in Moseley that we had exclusive use of for the evening: Little Blackwood.  This proved to be a most agreeable occasion, enhanced after dinner by reminiscences from Dr SIMON LINDLEY (see photo), who has done so much for organ & choral music in Leeds over many years.
