This month’s guest organist will be Penny Weedon.

“Penny’s passion for the keyboard orchestra has satisfied her ambition to play every instrument in the orchestra and to be a conductor. She has thrilled audiences countrywide, including Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre, Birmingham Town Hall, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, The Bonington Theatre Nottingham, The Regis Theatre, and countless music festivals and clubs. Having previously owned some incredibly heavy ‘transportable’ instruments, Penny is now the proud owner of a Yamaha DDK-7 Keyboard Orchestra, which she has named her “Travelling Light Orchestra”. One of very few such instruments in the UK, it offers an impressive array of performance and sound-creating opportunities, whilst being completely portable.”

As usual the concert will be at St.Peter’s Hall at at 7.30: Contact Philip Groves, Music for Woodhall, 01526 353225
