PORTICO PRELUDES: A TRIBUTE TO DAVID MCELDERRY

A glorious tribute to David McElderry and the launch of the Portico Preludes will take place in early December, both as a livestream and and in person event.
In memory of David, who built Portico’s magnificent organ, and with the support of the ACNI and ANDBC, Portico has commissioned 10 chorale preludes for organ from 10 of Ulster’s leading musicians.
During this event, Dr Joe McKee will pay tribute to the enormous contribution that David made to the world of organ building and music.

EVENT CANCELLED – 2021 European Heritage Open Days

It is with regret that St George’s, Belfast, will NOT be taking part in the 2021 European Heritage Open Days in September.  This is because of concerns over the Delta variant of Coronavirus.

The Church will not, therefore, be open on September 10th, 11th and 12th, as advertised.

We look forward to being part of the EHOD scheme next year and wish the project well for 2021.
