Clive Driskill-Smith

Clive Driskill-Smith, the international concert organist who is based at Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, gave the first Aperitif Recital at St Mary's Church Haddenham in May 2011. He returned on Monday 2nd December to play Louis Vierne's Fourth Symphony for Organ.

An audience of a little more than eighty people enjoyed wine and canapés as they listened, and watched on a screen in the nave, a performance of technical virtuosity and great musicality. At the conclusion they expressed their appreciation in rapturous applause and many went out of their way to thank and congratulate Clive personally.

On July 7th 2014 Aperitif Recitals will be welcoming its first female guest organist the twenty one year old Ghislaine Reece-Trapp.
