Sophie-Véronique will also give a masterclass in St Mary's Cathedral on Friday 6th September at 6.30pm.
Tickets for the concert are priced at $30 (students $20). If you buy your ticket before the end of this month, you will receive free entry to the masterclass, to which tickets are otherwise $10.
Sophie-Véronique, as well as being an exceptionally fine improviser, is a very gifted teacher. The masterclass will be a very hands-on affair, at which anyone who wants to will have the opportunity to try out the various techniques which Sophie-Véronique will be demonstrating and will be suitable for organists of all ages and abilities. After the masterclass, there will be an opportunity to meet Sophie-Véronique informally at a wine reception in Cathedral House.
