Organ Reframed 2016

The inaugural Organ Reframed took place at Union Chapel on the 7th to 10th October 2016. Over the 3 nights we saw a varied programme of film, intimate solo sets, ensemble improvisations and large scale commissions. A festival of experimental music, it challenged perceptions and showed our extraordinary 1877 organ in a new light.
