An Aberdeen cathedral will celebrate the life of one of its longest-serving organists at the weekend.
Mike Thomson was the organist at St Machar Cathedral in Aberdeen for more than 25 years until his death in July last year.
Members of the congregation and the public are invited to take part in the concert on Saturday evening at 7.30pm.
The event will be attended by several of Mr Thomson’s family.
His widow Sandra has said it will be a great way to celebrate his life.
She said: “Music was Mike’s passion so it is great a concert is being held to celebrate his life.
“Mike was part of the cathedral for more than 50 years which showed his love for the place.
“He loved the organ there and I am not surprised, it is the best in the North-east and one of the best in Scotland.”
Mr Thomson, who died at the age of 67, loved all music, which will be reflected in the concert on Saturday night.
He wrote a book about the Granite City’s cinema organs, an instrument he had always loved, named Silver Screen in the Silver City
Mr Thomson also helped to maintain the organ of the Capitol Theatre in Aberdeen for a number of years, even after the old cinema had closed.
Sandra, 69, said: “Mike was a quiet man, he had fabulous wit and his humour was brilliant.
“He was very introvert and didn’t know how good he was.
“Everybody loved him and no one had a bad word to say about him which shows the man he was.”
Several pieces of music will be played throughout the hour-and-a-half-long concert.
John Kitchen, an organist from Edinburgh and a good friend, will play a number of pieces written by Mr Thomson at the concert.
Also in attendance will be a brass band, which Mr Thomson played in when he was at university in Edinburgh.
Unbelievable Brass was formed by medical students in the capital, however, after a 60-year absence they reformed in 2011 to play at a medics’ university reunion.
Rev Barry Dunsmore said: “Mike had a tremendous passion for the cathedral and the organ there.
“The cathedral organ is in a great condition now, which is down to the work of Mike over the years to maintain it.
“He is sorely missed by the choir and the congregation at the cathedral.
“People are drawn to different parts of the cathedral and Mike had a love for the cathedral organ.”
