Organ Recital – Saturday 4 September
Thomas Trotter has withdrawn from this Prom, due to an arm injury. We are hugely grateful to Peter Holder who will be stepping in at short notice.
The programme will now open with Meyerbeer’s Le prophète – Coronation March, and there have been some changes to the programme, further details can be found here.
