With Christmas only around the corner, it's getting very busy. This week I am preparing for two Carol Recitals and a Wedding Showcase. This is one of the busiest times of the year for musicians, with a lot of Corporate Events and Christmas Concerts.
This year, I have taken on the role Church Organist. It has been a wonderful experience to learn the accompaniments of pieces that I sing. It has given me a whole new insight into the music that I've already learned and performed. Choosing registrations is probably the part with I enjoy most. Playing the organ is like having an orchestra at your fingertips and it's up to you how you wish to combine the stops.
I really look forward to playing Midnight Mass and on Christmas Day, which will be extra special this year!
