Celebrity Organ Recitals are back...
On Sunday 20 June, a new series of Celebrity Organ recitals starts at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds. This will be the first time that organ recitals can take place in front of a live audience since last year. The recitals start at 5.00 pm and there is no need to pre-book. Each recital will be given by a leading organist. The opening recital in this year’s series is given by Ashley Grote. One of the country’s foremost organists, Ashley is Master of the Music at our fellow East Anglian Cathedral at Norwich. Full details of the recital series can be found on the Cathedral website https://stedscathedral.org/events/celebrity-organ-recitals.
“We’re excited to be holding the first of our Celebrity Organ Recitals at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Sunday 20 June. This series is a marvellous opportunity to come and enjoy the magnificent Harrison & Harrison organ installed in 2010, and boasts an impressive line-up of soloists guaranteed to thrill and inspire you on Sunday evenings this summer. Do join us!”
