ORGAN ADVENTURE

Queen's Birthday Holiday Weekend - Saturday 8 to Monday 10 June 2013

The Organ Music Society of Sydney Inc is arranging an organ adventure that promises excitement and fulfilment for all.

We are pleased to invite the Hunter District Organ Music Society to join us for this weekend.

 

Saturday 8 June

The adventure begins amid the Norfolk Island pines in the stunning coastal town of Kiama, 120 km (2 hrs) from Sydney where we'll hear and play Australia's only Ladegast pipe organ in Christ Church Anglican, Kiama (1914).

After open console we drive to the famous Blow Hole for a picnic or pub lunch.

Pushing further south, we reach the quaint seaside town of Milton and the Church of Saints Peter & Paul, Milton, to hear and play the 1908 organ by Charles Richardson, restored last year by the Jewkes firm.

After open console we drive to Batemans Bay where we spend the night after a seafood dinner. Arrangements have been made for dinner (at own cost) which promises to be a good opportunity for socialising.

***

A modest charge of $15 a day will be made to cover the Society's costs, which include donations to the churches. It is intended to arrange for members to be able book and pay electronically through TryBooking.

It is recommended that you book your accommodation in Batemans Bay and Goulburn as soon as possible. URGENT: To be sure of accommodation, BOOK YOUR MOTEL ROOMS NOW!!

Members willing to provide transport for members without their own are kindly invited to notify Peter Meyer.


9 Sun

  Queen's Birthday Ramble

Sunday 9 June

Today we leave Batemans Bay for Bodalla, 50 km (40 mins) away. This small town, famous for its cheese, was once the estate of the tycoon, Thomas Sutcliffe Mort, who built the Church of All Saints, Bodalla, and installed a pipe organ of superb quality by Henry Willis & Sons in 1882. After a demonstration and playing time those who wish may join the parishioners for a service of Holy Communion. Arrangements have been made for lunch here (at own cost) and there may be time for a visit to the cheese factory.

After lunch we drive up the escarpment to the historic gold-mining town of Braidwood, 110 km (90 mins) away. Here, in St Andrew's Church, Braidwood, we hear and play an organ originally by Rendall (1908).

Then it's 85 km (90 mins) west to Goulburn, Australia's first inland city. After checking-in to the motel of your choice we assemble at St Saviour's Cathedral, Goulburn, at 6.00 pm where we will be welcomed by cathedral organist, Robert Smith. The large Forster & Andrews organ of 1884 is one of two magnificent organs in the city.

After open console we take a short stroll down the hill to the renowned, historic, four-star Paragon Café for dinner (at own cost) from the á la carte menu. We are booked in for 7.30 pm.

  Queen's Birthday Ramble

Monday 10 June

The final day of our adventure begins at 9.30 am in the superb acoustic of the Old Cathedral Church of Saints Peter & Paul, Goulburn, where Pastor de Lasala will demonstrate the large, Hill & Son organ of 1890. Playing this instrument, which can still be blown by hand, will give you some of the powerful thrill that comes from playing the Hill of similar vintage in the Sydney Town Hall. Then we drive 80 km into the Southern Highlands town of Bowral to the Church of St Simon & St Jude, Bowral, to hear and play the fine, enlarged Richardson organ of 1920, demonstrated by Brian Petchell.

After lunch in Bowral we head for home ahead of holiday traffic from the snowfields though, if you dare, you can explore the historic town of Berrima on the way back to Sydney.
