John tunes up for organ recital

THE next organ recital in the summer series at Morpeth Methodist Church will take place on Friday, July 13.

John Goodenough, who is Director of Music at St Alban’s Church in Windy Nook, Gateshead, will perform a range of pieces in a 40-minute concert.

He was born and brought up in Birmingham and studied Music at Huddersfield Polytechnic, then at the Royal College of Music.

In March 2011 John was awarded the Fellowship Diploma (FRCO) from the Royal College of Organists and he now divides his time between private piano teaching, curriculum support teaching for the Schools Music Service in Gateshead and Composition – which he is studying towards a PhD at Durham University.

The event starts at 12.30pm and admission is free. Light refreshments are available afterwards.
