Here are some of the main venues where we are privileged to hold events.
By kind permission of the Dean & Chapter, and with the cooperation of the Music Department, we have had the privilege of holding many events at our Cathedral.
ST MARTIN’S WORCESTER
We have enjoyed many events at St Martin’s London Road, Worcester. Our annual service and AGM have been held here many times.
ST SWITHUN’S, WORCESTER
We are pleased to have the curator organist of St Swithun’s (Andrew McCrea, Deputy Director of the RCO) as one of our members – and so, access to the wonderful Georgian organ at St Swithun’s.
RCO at ST SWITHUN’S
St Swithun’s also houses one of the Royal College of Organists’ reconstructed Tudor organs – the Wetheringsett. WOA has had the privilege of using it on a number of occasions.
ST MATTHIAS, MALVERN LINK
Thanks to our long-serving member and former Chairman Robin Lee, we have been able to use the historic John Nicholson organ at St Matthias for many workshops.
Members of WOA have permanent access to a private studio: in addition to some early instruments, there is a four-manual Hauptwerk console with a large collection of famous organs from around Europe.
HOLY TRINITY, WORDSLEY
This is the location for the Sunday Afternoon Organ Music series, played by our member Paul Carr. The organ there was maintained for many years by anther WOA member, Trevor Tipple.
