Concerts and Organ Elevenses

Organ Elevenses is a monthly Saturday morning recital series. Come and enjoy coffee, tea and cake served from 10.30am and a 40-minute recital on the newly-restored organ of the parish church from 11am with a large screen projection of the performer. The recitals are given in aid of the parish church organ fund. Occasionally recitals are also given by other solo musicians and choirs.

Saturday 8 June from 10.30am – Organ Elevenses with Richard Johnson

The series of Organ Elevenses recitals continues with a programme of music performed by Westbury-on-Trym’s very own organist, Richard Johnson.

Richard’s programme is:
Fantasia & Fugue in G minor, BWV 542 – J. S. Bach
Psalm Preludes Set 1, Op. 32 – Howells
Fantaisie in E flat – Saint-Saëns
Berceuse, from 24 Pièces en style libre – Vierne
Sortie in B flat – Lefébure-Wély

Coffee and cake is served from 10.30am, and the 40 minute recital begins at 11am with a large screen projection showing all the action from the organ bench in glorious technicolour. A lovely start to your weekend!
