“Music for Woodhall”
President Nicholas Martin B.E.M.
OUR OPENING CONCERT ON SEPTEMBER 3rd.
WITH NICHOLAS MARTIN B.E.M.
On Friday 3rd September the Woodhall Spa & District Organ Society presented its first
“Music for Woodhall” concert for 18 long months at the new venue of Coronation Hall.
An audience of some 66 people assembled to hear our President Nicholas Martin B.E.M.
play this special concert. The atmosphere was electric as Nick gave us a real evening
to remember of beautiful music of all styles. He opened with a swinging “In the Mood”
medley, followed by “Once Upon a Time in the West” which was accompanied by suitable
film clips. Then there were Theatre Organ medleys, the “Second Waltz” by Shostakovitch,
a Latin American medley, “The Conquest of Paradise” and so much more. The first half
concluded with a breath taking arrangement of “The Warsaw Concerto”. The superb music
continued in the second half with “The Blue Danube Waltz”, a TV Themes medley, some
more Blackpool Theatre Organ medleys and concluded with a finger twisting medley
of “The Sabre Dance”, the Intermezzo from “Cavalleria Rusticana”, then the Czardas,
“The Holy City” and Nick’s very clever adaptation of Tiger Rag with more than a touch
The audience loved it and we couldn’t have had a better opening for our new concert
season. Live music is definitely back and alive in Woodhall Spa!
