St Saviour's Organ Recital - 13 July 2019

St Saviour's Church - UK Sibelius Society sponsor an organ recital by Theodore Frazer

The organ is a superb liturgical instrument, being originally built in 1907 by William Hill. In 1998 it was completed as a two-manual instrument by F.H. Browne & Sons, of Canterbury. A unique selling point for this concert is The Improvisation on a Theme that Sibelius was asked to supply to the Organ Music Society of London in 1933. 

The UK Sibelius Society checked the records and asked permission from the family, so to their knowledge this is the first time this 9-bar fragment has been improvised on since 1933. 

The recital will be held at St Saviour's Church, Raynes Park SW20 9DL on Saturday 13th July – (7.00 for 7.30 p.m.)  Tickets cost £10.00 on the door, or just £1 if you are under 18.
