It’s Show-Time at St John’s!
Enjoy some of the most popular themes from stage and screen as you’ve never heard them before, as award-winning organist Claudia Grinnell demonstrates the versatility and range of the powerful St John’s Church organ with a “Show-Tunes” inspired programme culminating in a finale from the Sound of Music!

Claudia is Sub-Organist at Winchester Cathedral, where she has been on the music staff since 2017. She began learning the organ at St Peter’s Collegiate Church in Wolverhampton, and was Organ Scholar there during her final years at school. She then studied at the University of Cambridge, receiving a first-class degree in Music.
