2017 Earworms tickets now on sale

We are delighted to announce that our next event will take place on March 5th.  We are looking forward to welcoming the wonderful organist, David Davies and for this event we have moved to the Mary Harris Chapel on the Exeter University Campus.  The organ in the chapel offers a good view of the organ console, so the children will be able to fully experience this wonderful instrument.  We have always hoped to include some organ music in our Earworms programme and as you can see from David's biography below, we'll be enjoying some fabulous playing. 
Tickets are available from the Exeter Phoenix box office for this event -

Originally from North Wales, David Davies was educated at Eton College, at
Magdalen College, Oxford (where he was organ scholar), and at the Institute of
Sacred Music at Yale University. He studied organ with John Wellingham, Nicolas
Kynaston, Professor Thomas Murray and Dr Martin Jean.
David has held church organist positions on both sides of the Atlantic. In the USA he
served as Fellow in Church Music at Christ Church, New Haven, CT, and then as
Assistant Organist at St Philip’s Cathedral, Atlanta, GA, during which time he was
Artistic Director of Atlanta Schola Cantorum. Upon returning to the UK he was
appointed Sub Organist and Director of the Girls’ Choir at Guildford Cathedral, a
position he held for six years. During this time he was adjunct lecturer in music
theory at the University of Surrey, and Director of the Surrey Festival Choir that
was founded by Ralph Vaughan Williams during the Second World War. His
ongoing connections with the USA have enabled him to perform concerts in
California, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Florida, Alabama and New York. He is a commissioned composer both in this country and in the USA, where he studied with Ezra Laderman.
David lives in Devon and, having held the Assistant Director of Music position at
Exeter Cathedral, now pursues a freelance career as a keyboard player, lecturer and
