Birmingham City Organist since 1983, Thomas Trotter is one of the world’s top-ranking virtuoso organists and was awarded the 2020 Queen’s Medal for Music. His fortnightly lunchtime concerts last around an hour and showcase the organ’s sublime delicacy and awesome power – as well as his own technical wizardry – in some of the most inventive programmes you’re ever likely hear.

An elite orchestral player, Celia Craig has toured to five continents, played for the Royal family and was elected Chairman of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Celia was appointed Principal Oboe, Adelaide Symphony 2011-2018 and has also worked with the Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand and Malaysian Symphony Orchestras as a guest artist.

She is the founder of recording label Artaria, winner of WinnovationSA Arts Award 2020, an elected Associate of the Royal Academy of Music since 1997 and was a national finalist in Australian Women in Music Awards 2021.

Celia has experienced sound and colour synesthesia since infancy and has developed a national primary schools programme on synesthesia with Musica Viva in Schools: Colours of Home. Currently Resident Artist for the National Trust of South Australia, Celia curates special concerts in heritage properties including the founding Homestead of South Australia, Collingrove, and in other historically significant buildings as well as for private commissions.
