Organist’s recital in aid of building work at St Saviour’s, St Albans
ORGANIST Jeremy Woodside is giving a recital in aid of urgent church building work in a St Albans church on Sunday afternoon.
Jeremy, who is from New Zealand, is assistant organist at Christchurch Cathedral and having started piano lessons at the age of four, he transferred to the organ at the age of 10 while a chorister.
After spells as organ scholar at the cathedral and assistant music director at St Michael and All Angels Church, Jeremy came to the UK as junior organ scholar at Wells Cathedral while also acting as adminsitrator for the concert department of the cathedral school.
Jeremy has performed in the UK, Paris and Vienna as well as prestigious venues including Bath and Westminster Abbeys.
Now in his final year at Canterbury University studying for a music degree, he has recently been made a Fellow of Trinity College London in organ performance and his recital at St Saviour’s Church in Sandpit Lane is one of a number he is giving this month as part of a UK tour.
