Wednesday Lunchtime Recitals
St Botolph’s has been running lunchtime recitals since April 2012.
They have proved a popular way to relax at lunchtime with first rate music given by a range of performers; from soloists from London’s prestigious music schools to international recitalists travelling to London to perform on St Botolph’s historic organ.
Admission is free but a retiring collection is taken to support the soloists and the work of the church. The recitals last for 30mins and begin at 13.05 on Wednesdays. Recitals do not take place during August or over the Christmas period.
Forthcoming concerts include …
Wednesday 13 September - Cassandra Matthews (classical guitar)
Wednesday 20 September - Katherine Clarke (viola)
Wednesday 27 September - Thomas Leate (violin) & Simon Ballard (Viola)
Wednesday 4 October - Joanna Gutowska (cello)
Wednesday 11 October - Geoff Howells (organ)
Wednesday 18 October - Halcyon Quartet, performing Dvorak's String Quarter No 12 ("American")
Wednesday 25 October - Mark Gibbs (viola)
Wednesday 1 November - Sangbin Jung (violin)
Wednesday 8 November - Maho Harada (violin)
Wednesday 15 November - Cara Laskaris (string ensemble)
Wednesday 22 November - Iosif Purits (accordion)
Wednesday 29 November - Tessa Seymour (cello)
Wednesday 6 December - Roma Tic (violin)
Recitals then recommence on Wednesday 10 January 2018
The organ of St Botolph’s is arguably the oldest church organ in the country and has been exceptionally well restored by Goetze and Gywnn in 2006. Details of forthcoming organ recitals can be found here and on the church noticeboard.
In addition to the lunchtime recitals, St Botolph’s occasionally hosts evening concerts. News of forthcoming evening concerts will be shown here when the next dates are finalised.
