Barrhill organist Marie Mortimer is to perform at Ayr Town Hall as part of an event which will raise money for Marie Curie Cancer care.

The event at the Ayr Town Hall on Friday 5 December at 7.30pm and will be a celebration of Christmas music, songs and carols.

The event will bring together soprano Wendy-Anne Wilson, organist Marie Mortimer, the children of St. John’s Primary School, and the Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra with the voices of the audience to form what should be the biggest choir in Ayrshire; “The Town Hall Choir”. With support from South Ayrshire Council and The Rotary Club of Girvan, the event will be MC’d by Wallace Galbraith MBE.

Marie is also the organist at Girvan’s North Parish Church and was the only lady organist invited to perform in “The Organist Entertains” series of concerts by Michael Hitchon MBE.

The idea of performing to a full audience at Ayr Town Hall was on 74 year old Marie’s ‘bucket list’ and after sharing a coffee with Councillor Bill Grant the wheels were put in motion for the concert and to raise money for a worthwhile cause in the run up to the festive period.
