Around the Organ #2 – with Michael Fulcher

12 May 2018
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This new series in 2018 introduces the much acclaimed Tickell pipe organ in St John’s College within The University of Queensland to the university community and beyond. In this collaboration between the School of Music and St John’s College, organ recitalists will perform as soloists and in various accompanying and continuo roles with associate artists.

The beautiful and intimate acoustic space of the St John’s College Chapel makes for a delightful concert experience. Join us for afternoon tea to follow the performance where you can meet the artists and chat with musical friends old and new.
