Simon Lindley - Organ Recital [Music Festival 2015]
Saturday, 26th September at 1.00pm
[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2015]
2010 saw the restoration of the magnificent Father Willis organ in Wentworth Church. This concert continues the celebration of the completion of this wonderful instrument and we are privileged to be able to welcome Simon Lindley to perform for us in 2015.
Simon Lindley is a graduate of the Royal Schools of Music and spent his early career in London working with a number of churches, most notably at Westminster and St. Albans Cathedrals, and was organ tutor at the Royal School of Church Music’s College of St. Nicolas. He moved North to Leeds Minster in 1975 and was then appointed Leeds City Organist, holding both positions to this day. He has worked as a senior lecturer at Leeds Polytechnic and Senior Music officer for Leeds City Council, and been active in Lodges, serving as Grand Organist to the United Grand Lodge of England in 2010-12.
He devotes a considerable amount of time to Yorkshire music, being conductor of the Sheffield Bach Choir and Doncaster Choral Society, and former chorus master and now life vice-President of Halifax Choral Society and Leeds Philharmonic Chorus, along with numerous other activities. It is his prolific recordings for Naxos and Chandos for which he is particularly well known.
