Members of a North Herts choir had to stage a swift transplant op when they realised the organ they were planning to use would be broken down into bits.
The Orpheus Choir of North Herts was scheduled to perform at St Katherine’s Church in Ickleford on Saturday night until someone at the church remembered that the organ would be undergoing maintenance work.
The concert will now be at Tilehouse Street Baptish Church in Hitchin, instead.
A spokesman said: “We are very grateful to Tilehouse Street for agreeing to accommodate us at short notice, and we hope to reschedule our appearance at Ickleford for 2016.”
The concert, which features John Rutter’s lovely Requiem and several lighter pieces, including the choir’s commemoration of the Battle of Agincourt, begins at 7pm.
