It’s been a very exciting month for The Organ Manual. The launch of a new site is always daunting, but many positive comments have been made and there has been a great deal of interaction with the site, so that has been a good start. The social media pages have seen an increase in followers and much information has been shared.
In an exciting development for the site, the IAO and Organists’ Review will be working with The Organ Manual. They will be hosting the site and assisting in publicity as time goes by. In the meantime, various articles have been written for publication in several magazines and papers over the next few months. You may already have seen a piece in Church Times.
It’s not only been a big month for The Organ Manual, but also for those who have applied for Organ Scholarships and in particular those who have had organ trials at Oxbridge. Congratulations to all those who were successful.
