Now that lockdown restrictions have eased, weekly lunchtime concerts will restart at St Peter's Church.
The first Wednesday concert of the year will be performed by American composer-pianist Eric McElroy on June 2.
St Peter's stopped hosting its lunchtime concerts and recitals last March due to COVID-19.
Organisers are excited to be able to resume them next Wednesday with a programme including two pieces by Philip Martin, Maurice Ravel's Valses nobles et sentimentales, and Johannes Brahms' Intermezzi, Op. 117.
The St Albans city centre church is planning to run the concerts every Wednesday at 1pm until July 14.

"We are asking the audience to register to attend the concerts so that we can make sure the numbers allow for social distancing," said a spokesperson.
