Meetings and Events

2020-2021

 

At present, the ESO Council is unable to publish a syllabus for the next session because of ongoing uncertainty as to what restrictions on gatherings will be in place. Once the situation becomes clearer, this page will be updated. The summer  Console Supplement will not be published this year for the same reason.

 

In the meantime, last year's event schedule remains in place below to give readers an idea of what we usually offer.

2019-20

 

Monday 9 September 2019 at 6.30pm, The Chapel, George Heriot’s School: FILM NIGHT

Tonight, we will view a selection of recent DVD releases of organs and organ music. This will include clips from Fugue State Films' productions on the organs of Alkmaar, organs in Nottingham, and will end with a viewing of Graham Barber performing Reubke's Sonata on the 94th Psalm on the magnificent Schulze organ of St Bartholomew's, Armley. Refreshments will follow in the Staff Common Room, itself a place of considerable interest as it was the pupil refectory in the 17th century.
