Aperitif Recitals launches the first of its two annual thirty-five minute organ recitals on Monday 7th July, at 7pm.
This opening recital was to have been given by Ghislaine Reece-Trapp. Unfortunately she has had to withdraw, at almost the last minute, as she is suffering from chronic exhaustion brought on by university finals and other commitments.
However, Aperitif Recitals has been exceedingly fortunate in securing the nineteen year old organ scholar of Merton College — Peter Shepherd. A former head chorister of Worcester Cathedral, Peter is currently one of the most promising young organists at Oxford University. He is already professionally qualified both as an organist and a pianist, and he is also the official accompanist to the prestigious Oxford Bach Choir.
Aperitif Recitals promotes its concerts a little differently from many others. On arriving guests are presented with a glass of wine or soft drink. They are also invited to select canapés which may be enjoyed during the thirty five minute programme. The organist is videoed onto a screen in the front of the nave so that all may see as well as hear.
Admission is free although donations towards expenses are gratefully received at the conclusion of the recital.
The whole experience is an excellent aperitif to your dinner!
If you would like to attend please email Bruce Clarke as soon as possible, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
