Purcell’s Principal pulled out all the stops!
The Purcell School’s Organathon was a hugely successful event!
Over the course of 24 hours from 7.30pm on Thursday 13th October until 7.30pm on Friday 14th October, audiences both in person and online were treated to 12 organ recitals by Purcell’s Principal, Paul Bambrough. An enormous (and at times gruelling!) task, Paul embarked upon the challenge to raise funds for a new school organ and to mark the School’s 60th anniversary.
The Organathon kicked off in a packed CP Hall with an Opening Gala attended by students, staff, governors and the Mayor of Hertsmere, Cllr John Graham. The music continued throughout the night with some intrepid students, staff and members of the public in attendance, and ended with a Grande Finale entitled ‘Play Skillfully with a Loud Noise’.
So far Paul’s Herculean efforts have raised just over £9,000, and donations are still coming in. This page will remain open until Thursday 3rd November. It’s not too late to donate!
