Jeremiah Stephenson

At St Mary's Church on Thursday June 7th at 7pm the well patronised organ concert series, Aperitif Recitals, will present Jeremiah Stephenson, winner of the 2016 Czech International Organ Competition.

Jeremiah will be playing the five movement Sixth Organ Symphony by Charles-Marie Widor considered by organists and audiences alike as his most enjoyable and exciting symphony.

Aperitif Recitals, promoting two concerts a year, was started in 2011 and has proved to be astonishingly successful. Although admission is free patrons are greeted with wine and canap├ęs on arrival which they enjoy during a performance which lasts no longer than forty minutes.

Concerts have been described as 'relaxed yet refined — a party atmosphere with a discerning audience listening to an outstanding performance normally available only in a cathedral or city concert hall.'. The organist is video-screened for all to see.

If you have never been to an Aperitif recital why not 'give it a go' on June 7th?

If you do intend to come it is important that you email and tell us at aperitifrecitals@haddenhamstmarys.org

Donations toward expenses are gratefully received when leaving but, if you are a new-comer and did not enjoy the occasion, then have a glass of wine on us!
