Our celebrity organ recital this year is on Saturday 1st October at the Church of the Ascension, Berwick Hills, Penrith Road, Middlesbrough, TS3 7JR beginning at 7.30pm. The soloist will be the Director of Music at York Minster, Robert Sharpe. His programme will include works by Leighton, Stanley, Mendelssohn (Sonata 3) J S Bach (Passacaglia & Fugue) Franck (Chorale 3) finishing with his own arrangement of 'Knightsbridge' by Eric Coates.
Robert came to York Minster from Truro in 2008 and this is his first visit to us. He is an outstanding organist as well as being a superb choir trainer, as those who have heard him perform will have witnessed.
The cost is £5 per head. Please do make every effort to attend what will be a most enjoyable event. If you have transport difficulties, please contact me.
