A showcase to celebrate 40 years of Birmingham’s City Organist, Thomas Trotter.

The clue’s in the name – and when the Symphony Hall organ makes its big entrance in Saint-Saëns’s “Organ” symphony, you’ll feel the air itself shake. This is music that you simply have to experience live, and along with Poulenc’s barnstorming Organ Concerto it’s a sensational showcase for Birmingham’s city organist Thomas Trotter: an afternoon of French music at its sweetest, and most spectacular.
