Young Organist

Last October Aperitif Recitals welcomed the organ scholar of St Paul's Cathedral. On Friday 6th May 2016 Aperitif Recitals welcomes the assistant organist of Westminster Abbey!

The recital begins at at 7pm

Twenty three year old Matthew Jorysz will be performing the four movement Organ Sonata Opus 28 by Sir Edward Elgar. Admission is free.

On arrival the audience is greeted with a glass of wine and confronted by tables laden with canapés. Both are enjoyed during the performance which is video-screened.

The whole concert lasts a little less than forty minutes.

On leaving donations are gratefully received in order to cover expenses.

This will be the eleventh such recital and the previous ten have been very well patronised. The concerts have been described as 'a wonderfully civilised occasion with a relaxed and discerning audience'.

If you haven't attended an Aperitif recital do 'give it a go' — you will be warmly welcomed. Anyone wishing to attend should let Bruce know that they intend to come, please, so that catering arrangments can be suitably arranged. Email: bruce.clarke@hotmail.co.uk
