A COUNTRY TOUR: ORGANS NORTH OF THE HUNTER, NSW

The 2015 OHTA Conference will be held in country New South Wales, commencing in Newcastle on Sunday 27 September and finishing there on the afternoon of Saturday 3 October. It is proposed that a coach will leave central Sydney on the afternoon of 27 September (just after the above recital near Central Station) – interstate/overseas participants will therefore be able to fly in and out of Sydney. It is possible to fly directly to Newcastle (Williamtown), but as there are only a few direct flights daily from Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and some other regional centres, intending participants are advised to book early. Newcastle airport is some 30km from the centre of Newcastle, and is accessible by taxi or bus. If necessary, the conference coach will take participants to Newcastle airport at the conclusion of the conference and then return to Sydney.

The conference will take the form of a tour north along the mid-north coast of New South Wales as far as Bellingen, then inland to Armidale and returning to Newcastle. About 21 organs will be heard during the tour: the area contains representative samples of the work of English builders Hunter, Nicholson, Walker and Willis, an American Estey pipe organ and Australian organs by Davidson, Dodd, Fincham, Griffin & Leggo, and Whitehouse. There will be minimal overlap with organs visited during the 2005 conference, which focused on instruments of the lower Hunter Region. A small number of lectures and recitals will be given and there will be a short festival of Wesleyan hymnody to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the foundation of Methodism in New South Wales.

The cost of registration will be somewhat higher than previous conferences, owing to the inclusion of six nights' accommodation in the fee. There will be discounts for members and "early bird" registrations.

Enquiries can be directed to Kelvin Hastie (khas@bigpond.com): the conference brochure will be issued with the April 2015 edition of OHTA News and also available on the OHTA website.
