Coffee Day at Delyse’s Home 19th November 2012

A lovely late Spring day saw 22 of our members attend the Coffee Day at Delyse Whorwood's lovely home at Birkenhead. We were treated to a wonderful variety of instruments to play, some terrific music and a veritable banquet for lunch! It was nice to sit in the various outdoor areas and relax whilst soaking in the music, the convivial conversation and a delicious glass of punch!
Thank you Delyse for opening your home to your friends at the North Shore Organ and Keyboard Club and for all your hard work to make the day so memorable.

A Sunday Afternoon Musical Spectacular at the PumpHouse Theatre 18th November 2012

A discerning audience were treated to a magnificent Sunday Afternoon Concert promoted by The North Shore Organ and Keyboard Club. The audience were treated with wonderful music by some of the Club's talented musicians and followed in the second-half by Country and Western Superstar, Tami Neilson and accompanied by the very talented Paul Trenwith. Certainly a Concert to cherish in our musical memories. Tami and Paul were off to give a Concert at The Vectra Arena in the evening!

A big thank you to all the artists and support Club Committee staff for making the Concert so enjoyable.

Club Night 6th November 2012

There couldn't have been a better place to be this evening than at The North Shore Organ and Keyboard Club as we were right royally entertained by some of our talented members in the first half of the programme and then by our very special guest artist, Rendall Miller.  Rendall played a selection of light classical and easy listening standards on the Club's Yamaha Clavinova CVP-509. Randall's musical mastery certainly brought our magnificent Clavinova to life! Rendall even volunteered to play several encores at the end of his prepared programme much to the delight of the audience. It was pleasing that we had a near full house to hear such wonderful music.
