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 16 November from 10.30am – Soprano Elevenses with Alice Howse and Grace Edmunds 

We have something a little different on the menu for November’s Elevenses, with the sopranos Grace Edmunds and Alice Howse joining forces to perform a programme of solo sopranos and duets, with music from Purcell and Mozart to Ivor Novello and Irving Berlin.

Alice has been a chorister at Westbury-on-Trym since she was 7 years old and returned to the choir after her degree at Manchester University. Grace sings with Alice at City of Bristol Choir and performs as a soloist as part of Bristol’s Song Recital Series.

Alice and Grace’s programme is:
Sound the Trumpet – Henry Purcell
O Del Mio Dolce Ardor – Gluck
Via resti servitta, Deh vieni and Sull’ aria from The Marriage of Figaro – W.A. Mozart
Caro Mio Ben – Giodani
Die nacht – Richard Strauss
Widmung – Schumann
Flower Duet from Lakmé – Delibes
Waltz of my Heart – Ivor Novello
Play a simple melody – Kirby Shaw and Irving Berlin

Coffee and cake is served from 10.30am, and the 40 minute recital begins at 11am. A lovely start to your weekend!
