With it’s first concert of 2015 tonight (Thursday 15th January) we thought we’d give you a bit of background to WEOS – the Weyhill Electronic Organ Society. Music for everyone.
With its inaugural concert having taken place in July 2002 the Club is now in its thirteenth year, during which time it has staged over 150 concerts.
Anyone who enjoys live melodic music cannot help but derive considerable pleasure from listening to the modern electronic keyboards in use at these concerts. Forget the word ‘organ’ – the instruments featured are amazing pieces of electronic wizardry, capable of a wide range of sounds – from military or brass bands to orchestras, from violin to guitar; in fact, almost any musical sounds can be reproduced.
Of course, these instruments do not play on their own! There are numerous extremely talented, professional performers on the ‘circuit’ and first class entertainment within a friendly and relaxed environment is always assured. The styles of music presented by the guest performers are wide-ranging, from classical to contemporary, from waltzes to ballads, etc., and the programmes are always balanced to suit most musical tastes.
The Society’s concerts are held at the Fairground Hall, Weyhill (near Andover), usually on the third Thursday of each month, commencing at 7.30 p.m.
The use of video projection equipment ensures that the entire audience has an excellent view of the keyboard and pedal skills displayed by the performers. Tickets purchased in advance are attractively priced at £5.00, whilst admission at the door is £6.00 (occasionally subject to availability). Parking is free and light refreshments are provided during the interval.
As a special introductory offer, visitors to this website who would like to sample the entertainment for the very first time are invited to apply for complimentary tickets (although numbers are limited).
