Rachel Mahon 02

Aperitif Recitals presents its tenth concert on Thursday 1st October, when the twenty five year old Canadian born organist Rachel Mahon plays Charles-Marie Widor's Fifth Symphony for Organ at St Mary's Church Haddenham. The recital commences at 6.45pm.

Rachel is the current organ scholar of St Paul's Cathedral London and has been described, by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, as being amongst the top 30 Canadian classical musicians under the age of 30.

Since its launch in 2011 Aperitif Recitals has proved to be a popular organ concert series. Timed to be over before dinner, and lasting no longer than forty minutes or so, patrons enjoy wine and canapés as they listen to a performance which is video screened so that all may see as well as hear.

Admission is free although donations towards expenses are gratefully received on leaving.

Those who intend to come are asked to notify Bruce Clarke in advance by email at:
