Carol Williams On Tour
Carol Williams has just performed a concert in the Barrie Music Festival in Canada at the Collier Street United Church. Then Dr. Williams visited the beautiful city of Wiesbaden, Germany, to play a concert at St. Bonifatius Church. The church was built in 1849 and has a 1985 Hugo Mayer organ -- three manuals and sixty-seven ranks in a wonderful six second acoustic. Dr. Williams has also had the honor of being elected a Fellow in Performance (F.Perf.ASMC) of the Australian Society of Musicology and Composition.
UK Concerts and Honorary Award
Carol Williams, San Diego Civic Organist, returned to England to perform concerts in June, 2004. The first was in Brighton at the magnificent church of St. Bartholomew's opened in 1874 and is the tallest Parish church in the UK. The organ built by J. W. Walker in 1901 enjoys the splendid acoustics. The second concert was at Holy Trinity Blythburgh known as the Cathedral of the Marshes. This historical Church (dating from 1412) is a key centre in the Aldeburgh Festival established by Lord Benjamin Britten. This peaceful large church which still possess some medieval glass has a clean acoustic -- the two manual organ is by W. A. Boggis of Diss, Norfolk. The third concert was at St. Mary's in Great Yarmouth. Two organs were used for the concert, the Forster & Andrews built in 1889 and a Phoenix digital instrument. At this concert, Dr. Williams was presented with an Honorary Fellow of the North and Midlands School of Music (Hon. FNMSM). The last concert was the closing event at the Winchfield Festival in Hampshire. The beautiful Parish Church of St. Mary dates back to 1150 and is a truly exquisite building -- the organ was built by William Hill in 1902.
