Douglas Reeve, the man who made Brighton Dome’s theatre organ famous, began his musical career appearing as the Wonder Boy Organist at theatres around the country. We’re happy to be continuing this tradition by welcoming two bright young stars of the organ world.
Lewis Scott from Hull was recently named ATOS UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year 2016. Jamyma May Hanson, a 20-year-old student from the internationally recognised Rye Wurlitzer Academy, is current runner-up in the senior section of the same event. We are thrilled to welcome them both to the console of the mighty Brighton Dome organ.
Sussex-born Michael Wooldridge is no stranger to Brighton audiences, and regularly features on BBC Radio 2's The Organist Entertains. Michael will perform for the first half of this special concert, before welcoming Lewis and Jamyma to the stage, for a delightful afternoon of West End show tunes, Big Band favourites, and much more.
