The Great 12 Hour Organathon!
One historic organ, 3 extremely talented organists (plus a few friends) and12 hours of continuous music.
Help the Cathedral's Music Department to raise £1,000 for the Youth Choir tour to Västerås, Sweden by sponsoring this epic Organathon!
November 2014 - November 2014
Charity information: Gloucester Cathedral
To raise funds to subsidise costs to take the Cathedral’s flourishing Youth Choir (ages 13-19) on tour to our link diocese in Västerås, Sweden, in April 2015.
The tour will not only benefit the Youth Choir itself, but it will also strengthen the link between the Dioceses of Gloucester and Västerås.
It seems fitting that we should use our famous organ to raise funds that will benefit of our Youth Choir members, who give their time freely week in, week out.
To raise £1,000 to help subsidise the Youth Choir tour to Sweden in 2015.
Activities» The three Cathedral organists and some other members of the department will complete a 12-hour non-stop stint on the Cathedral organ.
By sending the Youth Choir on tour to Sweden.
Tours are important as they offer the choir an opportunity to sing in different settings in front of new audiences, as well as learning about different cultures and helping the group to bond. These are valuable experiences that help members to grow whilst improving the quality of their singing.
There is a risk that one of the organists might fall asleep but flasks of coffee (and the nature of the challenge!) will help to mitigate this.
Funders will receive a thank you from the Music Department, and a final report once the Organathon has been completed.
