The Musical Museum is looking forward to their new resident organist, Richard Hills, playing in his first Christmas Concert at the venue. The annual concerts are highly popular events setting the festive theme for the weeks ahead, with a varied selection of favourite pieces played on the Mighty Wurlitzer to a backdrop of seasonal images on the big screen and atmospheric lighting.
Richard Hills Resident Organist at the Musical Museum
The Museum was delighted when Richard Hills accepted the post as resident organist in April 2021. Richard is one of the very few musicians to have bridged the gap between the classical and theatre organ worlds. He was awarded scholarships at Exeter College Oxford, Portsmouth Cathedral and Westminster Abbey and is currently Organist of St Mary’s, Bourne Street, a London church noted for its fine music tradition.
In the theatre organ world, Richard’s career has been equally prestigious. He was named Theatre Organist of the Year by the American Theatre Organ Society in 2010 and has appeared many times as a soloist on television and radio in programmes including BBC Radio 3’s ‘Choral Evensong’ and BBC Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night is Music Night’. He appeared as a soloist in the BBC Proms in 2013 and 2015 and had a solo recital at The Royal Festival Hall in 2019, alongside playing in concerts in the USA and Europe.
Richard is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and serves as a Musical Adviser to the UK’s Cinema Organ Society.
£17.50 including a glass of prosecco on arrival.
