Restored JW Walker Pipe Organ at Dublin Unitarian Church to be re-dedicated this Sunday at a special afternoon recital

Sunday 6th December @ 3pm

Dublin Unitarian Church, 112 St. Stephen’s Green West, Dublin 2 (beside Royal College of Surgeons)

Celebrating the culmination of an ambitious restoration project which took 2 years under the stewardship of Irish organ builder Trevor Crowe and cost the church community €253,000, there will be a recital this Sunday 6th December at 3pm to be given to a capacity crowd. Tickets are already sold out.

Five of the finest Irish organists (David Adams, Charles Pearson, Simon Stroughair, Robbie Carroll and Siobhán Kilkelly) will perform short sets to combine to form a diverse mixture of French, German, Irish and English organ music. To cap it off, and to invite the festive spirit, a choir made up of members of the church choir and others will sing Fantasia on Christmas Carols by Ralph Vaughan Williams accompanied by Siobhán Kilkelly at the organ. The choir will be conducted by the church organist and director of music, Josh Johnston.

Josh is proud of the achievement the church has made in getting this far. “As a church we took a brave step in deciding to do this work in the middle of the worst recession in Ireland in seventy years”, he said; “The community has really dug deep, organising and attending fundraising events, sponsoring pipes, even helping Trevor out with parts of the project on occasion. Now it is almost finished, the organ is sounding better than ever and is a joy to play”.

Josh, on behalf of the church, is looking forward to organising organ recitals next summer 2016.
