Music at Grasmere is a programme of concerts and choral services at St Oswald’s Church, organized on behalf of the PCC by the Director of Music, Ian Hare.
These events include organ recitals, instrumental and choral concerts, choral evensongs and an annual ‘Come and Sing’ oratorio. Proceeds from the concerts currently support the Organ Renovation Appeal.
The church possesses a fine Steinway grand piano and a three manual organ by J. J. Binns, donated by the Taylor of Grasmere in memory of their daughter, Nellie, who died in France during World War I. 100 years on this fine historic organ is in need of restoration, details of which can be found on our Appeal Pages.
Grasmere has a fine musical heritage and events at St Oswald’s Church reflect a diverse range of music. The church choir sings for the major festivals.
The coronavirus severely curtailed the programme of concerts, but it is hoped they will resume in the near future.
