David Briggs Organ Concert

Join us as one of the world's great organists plays Truro's iconic Father Willis organ in a special fundraising concert. David Briggs, formerly of Truro Cathedral, is an internationally renowned organist whose performances are acclaimed for their musicality, virtuosity, and ability to excite and engage audiences of all ages. The concert will include an improvisation to a silent movie and David will be joined by Truro Cathedral Choir and friends for choral works.

At 19:00, David will give a pre-concert talk (optional), with performance from 19:30. We would ask those not joining for the talk to please take your seats by 19:25 for the performance.

Proceeds from this concert will go towards urgent maintenance work that needs to be carried out on the Father Willis organ.
