Lunchtime Organ Music by lonyoo


									Leeds Lunchtime Organ Music
Leeds Town Hall
Mondays, 1.05pm - 2pm

Lunchtime Organ Music Season 2005/2006
Mondays from 1.05 to 1.50 pm

It is a very great pleasure to introduce the 30th annual series of lunchtime organ music at Leeds
Town Hall.

This season includes two Meet the Town Hall Organ Events at 9.30am on Saturday mornings and
two early evening Teatime Concerts from 5.00 -5.45pm on a Tuesday. I also look forward to your
requests for the special programme on 12 March.

Owing to the use of the Town Hall for examination purposes, this season’s Yorkshire Three
Choirs’ Festival recital on Monday 9 October will take place at Leeds Parish Church.

Once again this year, admission to all the concerts is free of charge; we would like to thank
everyone for their ongoing generosity to the retiring collections.

I do hope you will join us for these enjoyable and popular events and look forward to welcoming
you at Leeds Town Hall.
