The first concert of 2022 welcomes back returning favourite Michael Stewart, Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral in Wellington. Michael is also Music Director of the Tudor Consort and Deputy Music Director of the National Youth Choir.
His programme will be a celebration of César Franck, whose 200th birth anniversary is this year. His longest work, the Grande Pièce Symphonique, will give the Town Hall organ a real workout.
For the rest, Michael has chosen a good mix of Bach, Latry, Couperin and his own arrangement of a Radiohead hit!
