Tuesday 19 March 7.30pm
CLESO visit to the workshops of Mander organs, St Peter's Square, London, E2 7AF
Manders, the well-known London based organ builder, cares for the great organs of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Royal Albert Hall and many others. They have recently completely restored the organ in the chapel of King’s College London and are currently working on rebuilding the organ of Waltham Abbey. This behind-the-scenes tour will explore how pipe organs are built, rebuilt, and maintained. We will also be given a demonstration of pipe voicing and tuning.
This visit has been arranged in response to feedback from our members’ survey where members asked for an opportunity to learn more about the mechanics of the organ, and is also part of our new approach to broaden the scope of our events in addition to visiting new and exciting venues with widely different instruments.
Registration is essential for this event because the tour will be limited to 15 people. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are interested in attending, please contact us
