FOSB Annual Fun Party for members and their guests

Party
Last year, though our Fun Party was popular, our Annual General Meeting was sparsely attended. So this year we are generating synergy and saving energy by combining the two. Our chairman, Alan Lowman, loves parties as does our new President. Our objective is to have a good party and come away enthused with the notion that "funding the fabric" is fabulous!

Jonathan Mann Organ Recital
Tickets - price TBA - from the Daphne du Maurier Box Office

Jon Mann, organist

This event is part of the Daphne du Maurier Festival which runs from Thu 7th May to Sat 16th May


Jonathan Mann studied the organ in Launceston with the late Royland Jordan, with whom he gained his ARCM and entry to the Royal College of Music. Whilst there, he studied choral training under Sir David Willcocks, and the organ with John Birch (Chichester Cathedral), being awarded the Parratt and Haigh prizes for organ playing in his third year. This led to a further year of study, after graduating, specialising in organ playing (with John Birch) and theory and composition with Dr William Lloyd Webber.

Returning to Cornwall, he resumed studies with Royland Jordan, and was for many years Organist and Choirmaster of St Mary Magdalene's Parish Church, Launceston. He has broadcast on both radio and television. He directs the Launceston Choral Society, and is Assistant Music Director of the Launceston Male Voice Choir, as well as being Chairman of the Royal School of Church Music, Cornwall Area, and Diocesan Organ Advisor.

As a contrast to this, he enjoys working full time for the Launceston Steam Railway. In his spare time, he designs railway publicity materials, is a volunteer Driver on the Talyllyn Railway in Wales, and plays the Cinema Organ!

This will be his second concert at St Bartholomew's Church, Lostwithiel, and like the first, the music will demonstrate the instrument's versatility for the performance of music of a wide range of styles, including music written for the organ by composers such as Bach or Handel, arrangements of classical orchestral music, light music, and also novelty items which were so popular in the 1920s and 30s.

The church is fortunate in having a good instrument which is used regularly, and is well maintained, with a useful range of tonal colour. Last year's concert was billed 'Hear the organ as never before'! Whilst the same heading clearly cannot be used this year, you can be assured of an entertaining and varied programme.
