I visited Gillingham Methodist Church today to rehearse for my first recital. I am honoured and very proud to have been invited to perform my own recital but I never expected to see my name in print outside the church!
I have really enjoyed putting the programme together for the event. I don’t have a vast repertoire and with everything that’s been going on I’ve not had time to add to it. Initially I was going to play my favourite pieces from each grade. Baba suggested I base it on my ‘firsts’ and I’ve really enjoyed doing it. Going down ‘memory lane’ I’ve revisited the first piece I ever played on the organ, the first concert piece I played right the way through to the first Cathedral voluntary I played just last week. It’s a true story of my organ playing progress and I think once I’ve written about why pieces are important it will really come together.
Once things are finalised I’ll publish my programme on my blog!
