Welcome to the United Reformed Church Whitehaven Music Page. You can find details of all our upcoming concerts, the history of the Fantastic Instrument we are so fortunate to have in the Church, our present Organist and how the regular concerts we enjoy came about. Please do explore the site as there is a wealth of information and concert and service recordings. As a major new addition to the site - Frank Bowler Director of Music in St Bees Priory has been a magnificent support and I'm delighted to include a St Bees page where we can get a glimpse of Franks work at St Bees. We hope you enjoy this page. Please do pass the site information onto friends and family who might like to join us at our concerts.
The Recording of the Instrument used for the Radio Broadcast. George Thalben-Ball Elegy - Sounded a little better on the Radio but do Enjoy
Aims of the Project and Concerts
The primary focus of our monthly concerts is to have fun, create enjoyment and provide a focal point to bring the community together; visitors to Whitehaven; Local Office Workers & Shoppers and Traders et al.. We try to provide a variety of music using the piano and voice as well as the magnificent instrument in the church. By providing a focal point for local musicians its is hoped over time the URC in Whitehaven will attract a variety of musicians to entertain what is always a very appreciative and welcoming audience. As a result of the concerts we are raising valuable funds to support the maintenance of the Instrument - more on that to come !!!
