Music lovers in Oamaru are in for a rare treat this Victorian Heritage Week as internationally renowned concert organist Kemp English brings his stunning new state-of-the-art digital organ to the town for the very first time. Kemp will present a not-to-be-missed programme of delightful selections from the organ’s magnificent repertoire. This event is entry by donation.

Organ Transplant comes hot on the heels from Kemp’s highly successful tour of the UK (Tewkesbury Abbey, Chester Cathedral, Hull City Hall, Lancaster Town Hall, etc.) and concerts in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Montpellier Cathedral. Featuring music from his three hugely popular Stormin’ Norma CDs (recorded on the Dunedin Town Hall organ) and his very latest disc ‘The Organ is Dancing’ which recently featured on Radio New Zealand Concert and the BBC, there will be something for every musical taste. In his inimitable way, Kemp will introduce and perform works by Bach, Smart, Dubois, Saint-Saëns, Rawsthorne, Lithgow, Joplin and Lefébure-Wély and showcase a selection of magical works by the contemporary Norwegian composer, Mons Leidvin Takle. As Kemp and the organ’s console will be center stage, everyone will have a bird’s eye view of the performance.
