Organ Festival Continues...
Dan Soper, Assistant Director of Music at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, is the recitalist at the Cathedral’s Organ Festival Recital on Saturday 5 September. The programme, which commences at 5 pm, includes music by Stanford, Walton, Widor and Bach.
This is the fifth Organ Festival, following the success of previous years. It showcases well-known organists from far and wide, and continues throughout the year.
‘The Organ Festival has become an important part of our annual music programme,’ comments James Thomas, Director of Music at St Edmundsbury Cathedral. ‘These recitals are popular and give audiences the chance to hear first class music on a first class instrument.’
The organ was completely refurbished in 2010 and was further enhanced by the installation of two new painted and gilded cases which have transformed the interior of the Cathedral.
