No festival is complete without an event dedicated to the many lovers of organ music. The festival welcomes Philip Scriven, the Organist-in-Residence at Cranleigh School, Principal Conductor of the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra, and Assistant Conductor and Accompanist of the world-renowned Bach Choir.

He is widely regarded as one of the nest organists of his generation, and highly respected as a choral, orchestral and operatic conductor. His programme takes us on a kaleidoscopic tour of both music written specifically for the organ and in arrangement.

You'll be able to study Philip at work as cameras will be relaying what he's up to with hands and feet onto screens in the auditorium.
