Edward Price & Stephen Disley

Aperitif Recitals will shortly be presenting something a little different for the second of its two annual concerts, on Wednesday 1st October at 7pm in St Mary's Church Haddenham.

Two well seasoned BBC Promenade Concert performers are coming to Haddenham to give a recital that will include both songs for baritone and piano as well as at least two organ solos.

Edward Price was a choral scholar in the choirs of both Clare and King's College Cambridge. He is now a member of the BBC Singers — the only professional full time choir employed by the corporation. He is also in much demand as a soloist. The BBC Singers have taken part in several promenade concerts this season and Edward was interviewed on BBC tv this summer discussing music that the choir was about to perform

Stephen Disley is sub organist of Southwark Cathedral London and has taken part in several promenade concerts seated at the mighty Royal Albert Hall organ. Stephen is a well established solo performer and works with major choirs and orchestras both here and abroad

Enjoy wine and canapés as you listen to this forty five minute recital. The organ console is projected onto a screen in the nave so that all may see. Admission is free. Donations towards expenses are gratefully received at the end of the evening. If you wish to attend please notify Bruce Clarke, Email: bruce.clarke@hotmail.co.uk Tel: 01844 299 030
