DirkJan Ranzijn (music)

Fresh from both the Daffodils And Tulips Keyboard Festival in Bournemouth and the Bewdley Keyboard Festival in Kiddeminster, Dutch keyboard maestro DirkJan Ranzijn is performing a concert at Hailsham Pavilion on the 13th of March as the guest of the Hailsham Organ Club.

Ranzijn was born in Alkmaar, Holland in 1968. As a child, he was taught to play the organ by Franz Oudhoff and Peter Rijs before leaving school at eighteen to study for a diploma in acting and music. He was approached a few years later by the German manufacturer Bohm who invited him to become a freelance demonstrator for their products. Ranzijn still uses a Bohm for every performance. He now tours seemingly non-stop in Europe, particularly Germany, Denmark and the UK, as well having many gigs in Holland.

Founded in 2000, the Hailsham Organ Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at Hailsham Pavilion. There is a guest performer each month and you can see the planned list for the rest of 2013 on their website. Doors open at 19:00 for members and 19:15 for non-members who will be made very welcome.

Hailsham Pavilion, Wed 13th Mar, 19:30.
Tickets £6 non-members, £4 members payable on the door.
