Cathedral’s Organ Prom returns in style

Round & About

Enjoy an evening of family-favourite classics at Salisbury Cathedral’s Organ Prom.

Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Gershwin’s classic Summertime, a Star Wars medley by John Williams and Sherwin’s A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square – just a few of the popular classics that can be heard at Salisbury Cathedral’s Organ Prom on 13 August at 19.00.

This not-to-be-missed event makes its triumphant return with music performed by the Cathedral’s ‘home team’ of organists, Director of Music David Halls, Assistant Director of Music John Challenger and Assistant Organist Samuel Bristow. A memorable summer evening out with all the action in the organ loft relayed onto the Cathedral’s new extra-large screen for all to enjoy!

Concert goers are invited to enter into the spirit of the occasion by dressing ‘promenade style’ and enjoying a glass or two of Pimm’s while basking in the sounds of the Father Willis organ, restored in 2019 at a cost of over £750,000.

Consummate musicianship, a fabulous instrument in fine voice and great music – the last Organ Prom was a sell-out with an audience of nearly 1000, so buying your tickets early is advised.
