A ‘Piping Hot’ performance

Regarded as one of the finest organists of his generation, Philip Scriven, will be performing at All Saints Church, Hastings, on Monday, July 22.

Organist in residence at Cranleigh School, Philip is also the principal conductor of the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra, and assistant conductor and accompanist of the Bach Choir.

He combines these posts with a freelance recital career which takes him around the world. His talent as a performer and an accompanist has been recognised by numerous awards at the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Organists, most notably as an RCO “Performer of the Year”. He is one of the few organists to have performed as a soloist in Carnegie Hall.

On Monday evening Philip will play music by Brewer, Bach, Oliphant Chuckerbutty, Mendelssohn, Vierne and Rawsthorne. The second half of the programme is a transcription of the complete Symphony No. 4 in F minor by Tchaikovsky.

Tickets at the door are £8, and refreshments are available in the interval.
