Cathedral Organ Recital Series

On Friday (10 March), Truro Cathedral will launch its 2017 organ recital series with renowned organist David Davies giving the first recital starting at 1.10pm.

Each Friday from March to mid-October at 1.10pm the cathedral fills with an audience anticipating some wonderful playing from one of the great musical instruments to be found in the country. The Father Willis organ is deemed by many national and international organists to have a magical sound and quality that lifts it above others. We are delighted to welcome David Davies to launch the series. David was educated at Oxford and Yale before going on to hold prestigious posts in the USA and, here in the UK, at Guildford and Exeter Cathedrals.

There will be a big screen linked to several cameras so the audience can see the organists combine the organ’s four keyboards with some dazzling footwork on the pedal board.

In the weeks and months following this opening recital, our series will be in full swing, with lots of top names booked to come and play on Fridays at 1.10pm between now and October. A full listing of the recitals can be downloaded from the cathedral website, The series is free to attend but a suggested donation is asked for to help cover costs.

Don’t miss this chance to hear the mighty Father Willis organ like you’ve never heard it before!
