St John’s Organ Project have teamed up with the Multi-Story Orchestra, a young orchestra based in a disused Car Park in Peckham, to offer local school children the chance to learn about and perform with the recently refurbished historic St John’s Organ.

In afternoon workshop sessions, students will learn about and hear performances of two famous pieces for orchestra and organ; Elgar’s Sospiri and Poulenc’s Organ Concerto, performed live by the Multi-Story Orchestra with the St John’s Organ. They will also be learning a piece by young composer Kate Whitley for Choir, Organ and Orchestra, Wishes, of which there will be a performance of at 4:30pm (14th May)/2:45pm (15th May).

Parents, friends and teachers are very welcome to come along to support the children for their performance at the end of the workshops.
