Our 2021 monthly Organ Recital series continues with a VIRTUAL recital given by Chris Milburn.
Chris Milburn first played an organ at the age of 8 and was hooked, first playing for a church service at 9. He was the full time church organist for St Bridget’s, Brean, by the age of 10. Chris continued in this role until going to university.
Chris was lucky enough to learn on Wells Cathedral Organ, and quickly found that you could bribe vergers (with cake) to lock you in the cathedral for an hour or so in the evening! Chris continued to play whilst at university and found it was a great source of Sunday lunches with the church locals!
Chris spent his industrial year at ARE Portsdown and joined the choir of St Mary’s Church, Portsea. He also played for several services and most of the weddings during that year, and still gets invited to play for the odd service which is a great privilege.
Chris is looking forward to entertaining a remote crowd with an unconventional repertoire at this organ recital!
