September to October 2017 Piano Programmes

St Lawrence Jewry Piano Recitals

September and October 2017


Our Monday lunchtime piano recitals have run for very many years and we are proud that we have a particularly interesting piano for our artists to play, a Steinway which belonged to Sir Thomas Beecham.  Admission is free, but the expenses of our music ministry are considerable and we are most grateful for your generosity in the retiring collection.

We are welcoming back in this series, among others, Hiroaki Takenouchi (who first played when he was a pupil of Yonty Solomon) and Mikhail Shilyaev (who first played as part of the Worshipful Company of Musicians and SLJ Scheme).  There are some pianists new to us (Phillip Leslie and Iyad Sughayer).    What all of our Pianists have in common is a love of playing interesting programmes of music for us at St Lawrence Jewry.
