BBC Radio presenter Nigel Ogden will be putting Lichfield Cathedral’s famous organ through its paces at a concert in the city.

Renowned as a composer, presenter and recitalist across the globe, Nigel will be performing at the Cathedral on September 17  at 7.30pm.

The recital, which is part of the Celebrity series, will include works by Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Nigel said:

“Having only ever played the Lichfield Cathedral organ during a private visit many years ago, I am really looking forward to my concert there.

“I know I will enjoy turning the Lichfield organ into a might Wurlitzer for a couple of hours!”

“As a presenter of The Organist Entertains on BBC Radio 2, the music I’ll be playing will be along similar lines – a selection of popular and light classical music, very much on the theme of something for everyone.

Tickets – priced £10, including a glass of wine and a programme – for the concert can be obtained in person from the Lichfield Cathedral bookshop (9, The Close) or by calling 01543 306150.
