Andreana Chan

Andreana Chan is currently in her second year as organ scholar at Pembroke College, Cambridge, reading law. She first started playing the organ because she loved how loud this instrument could be. She still loves making lots of noise, but now appreciates the beautiful quiet colours of the organ as well. She regularly conducts both the Pembroke College Chapel Choir and the Girls’ Choir, and is also a keen violinist and pianist who achieved the LRSM diploma whilst at school. She is the director of the Minerva Festival 2023, a festival promoting the music of underrepresented composers, and recently co-directed an acclaimed production of Pauline Viardot’s Cendrillon in Cambridge. As a soloist, she has performed in venues such as St John’s College, Trinity College Cambridge, Wigmore Hall, St John’s Smith Square and St Martin-in-the-Fields, and is looking forward to pulling out all the stops at her Royal Albert Hall debut this April.

Berkshire Organists' Association

Patron: Dame Gillian Weir

The Berkshire Organists' Association is proud to support the series of organ recitals on the historic Father Willis organ in the Concert Hall, ensuring that this important instrument is played and heard regularly.

Our association was formed in 1921 with the aims of promoting the art of organ playing, bringing the organ and its music to the public, and providing advice and support to players. We hold regular organ-related events monthly for members, including social gatherings and visits to churches, cathedrals and concert halls across Southern England. We also arrange public organ concerts in local churches.

New members, who need not be players, can be assured of a very warm welcome. We hope that anyone interested in the organ and its music will join us.
