OrganFest: Mr Majeika & Magic Organ Family Concert

OrganFest: Mr Majeika & Magic Organ Family Concert


OrganFest happens every two years thanks to the collaboration of three national organisations: the British Institute of Organ Studies (BIOS), the Incorporated Association of Organists (IAO) and the Royal College of Organists (RCO), the three UK bodies which represent organists and organ studies. OrganFest 2019 is the fifth OrganFest since the series was founded in 2014. The last OrganFest was in Hull in 2017, when it was UK City of Culture.

The Welsh capital will host OrganFest 2019. A biennial national event, OrganFest this year will be held at landmark churches in Cardiff, at the National Museum and at St David’s Hall, and a gala organ concert at Llandaff Cathedral.

OrganFest 2019 - Mr Majeika and the Magic Organ: Family Concert with David Pipe (organ), John Biddle (narrator) and Jeremy Sampson (curator of the ‘WOOFYT’).

David Pipe (Organist of Leeds Cathedral and Director of the Organists’ Training Programme, Diocese of Leeds) introduces the magnificent organ of the city’s iconic St David’s Hall and is joined by John Biddle (narrator) to perform Bob Chilcott’s Mr Majeika and the Magic Organ, based on Humphrey Carpenter’s popular children’s story.

In addition, Bach’s mighty Toccata and Fugue in D minor will be played by David, and to show the organ’s versatility, he will also play music from Star Wars and Harry Potter!

This Family Concert will also feature Jeremy Sampson and the Wooden One-Octave Organ for Young Technologists (WOOFYT) – a fascinating, hands-on experience for children which introduces them to the mechanics of the organ.
