Free organ recital is offered

A FREE organ recital will take place in Morpeth tomorrow.

Morpeth Methodist Church in Howard Terrace will play host to the recital by Peter Waugh from Trinity Church in Gosforth.

Mr Waugh started learning to play the organ at the age of 18, but a busy career in civil service prevented serious study for many years. When he retired, Mr Waugh resumed study with the late Geoff Watson at St John’s in Grainger Strret and then Scott Farrell at Newcastle Cathedral.

He was accompanist and Musical Director of Addison Male Voice Choir in Ryton from 1985 to 1994 and held the same post at Backworth Male Voice Choir from 1997 to 2004.

He has recently served as assistant accompanist for the Mid Northumberland Chorus.

The Morpeth recital takes place at the church from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, and will be followed with refreshments.
