Online organ concert series

Wednesdays
Norwich Cathedral Organ © Paul Hurst

Norwich Cathedral's organists are offering a free weekly organ concert for people to enjoy in their own home via the Norwich Cathedral Services YouTube Channel.

Every Wednesday people can enjoy watching the Cathedral's musicians play the mighty organ, which is one of the largest pipe organs in the country.

The Cathedral's new camera system also means that people can enjoy a behind-the-scenes view of the concerts and watch both the musician's hands and feet at work!

Programme details will be made available on the Cathedral website in the days before each concert as well as on the YouTube listing.
