We are delighted to welcome the award-winning organist Aaron Hawthorne to play Music From The Movies on our organ.
Aaron Hawthorne is a professional musician with a Master of Arts (with Honours) degree from the University of Glasgow. He frequently performs organ recitals, concerts and silent film accompaniments across the UK, Europe and the USA. He started his career as an organist in Motherwell Cathedral and was later the principal organist at St Bride’s Roman Catholic Church, Cambuslang for five years. He is currently a house organist at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Glasgow.
He has now completed two UK+ silent film tours, with The Phantom of the Opera (1925) in 2021 and Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1922) in 2022. These performances have been critically acclaimed and the shows successfully engaged new audiences with the worlds of silent film and pipe organs.
