Friday Lunchtime Organ Music: Stephen Farr


Venue

St Michael and All Angels Church
Bath Road
London, W4 1TT

Details

Date:
February 7
Time:
12:30 pm - 1:15 pm

On the first Friday of every month, from 12.30 to 1.15pm, we hold a short organ recital.
Admission is free, with a retiring collection in aid of St Michael & All Angels music provision.
See the forthcoming recitals at Organrecitals.com. Kindly supported by Ballet4Life.com.

The organist is Stephen Farr (Director of Music, St Paul’s Knightsbridge).

Recognised as “one of the brightest and most active English recitalists” who “plays with immaculate finish and buoyancy” (Classic CD), Stephen Farr is widely regarded as one of the finest organists of his generation, with a virtuoso technique and an impressive stylistic grasp of a wide-ranging repertoire. He combines a busy freelance playing career as soloist, continuo player and accompanist with the post of Director of Music at St Paul’s Knightsbridge, one of London’s most prominent churches.
