Geoff Winter Memorial Concert

Free - donations welcome

Grantham music teacher and church organist Geoff Winter receives the British Empire Medal (BEM) from Lord Lt of Lincolnshire Tony Worth at St John in Spittlegate Church, 23rd March 2013.

 

A memorial concert for  the late Geoff Winter will be held on  September 15th at St John’s Church, Spittalgate, at 7pm.

Mr Winter,  former teacher, organist and all-round inspiration Geoff Winter died in April, aged 85.

There are few people in Grantham who have had anything do with music, who hasn’t been influenced by Geoff, either tutored or by one of the groups, school events or festivals he created.

He was musical director of Grantham Singers, joint founder with Vincent Cable of Grantham Operatic Society and a founder member of Grantham Music Festival.

And his family continue to be influenced by his love of music. Married to Cecilia (patron saint of church music), his daughter Helen is a professional singer.  Granddaughter Rebecca is a member of the Soldier’s Wives’ choir while son and grandson were both in local pop groups.
