Our Artiste for Weds.  Dec. 13th. is John Cooper.

John took an interest in music at the age of 11 years. Whilst taking lessons he was put forward into the Yamaha Electone Festivals and was successful in getting to the England finals. At the age of 16 he left school and was teaching classes for the Yamaha School of Music. He was also active in demonstrating keyboards, piano and organs.

John has always prided himself on making the organ sound like a full Orchestra , Big Band and Theatre Organ. His dream organ has always been the Yamaha EL900m. which he has played for many years.

However, in 2016 John purchased the magnificent Yamaha STAGEA ELS 02c . He spends time on making his musical arrangements unique and full of feeling, using his own rhythms to add that personal touch, playing everything “LIVE“. Never using Multi-Tracking.

John has put together a concert that he feels has something for everyone, from modern day to past classics.

This is the first time John has played for our Society and I am sure we can look forward to an evening of music which will suit all tastes.

Another reason to attend - Yes it's Mince Pie time folks  !!!
