Tickets are now on sale for a Special Concert of Organ and Brass which will take place in St Marys Church Beverley on Saturday 10th April at 7.30pm
The evening is set to be very special with the return to the town of Stephen Binnington, brother of local musician and St Marys Organist, Alan Binnington. Stephen will take to the console of the Organ in St Marys Church, Beverley, to perform a varied programme organ pieces. In addition Stephen will be joined by Tempus Brass Quintet who have a national reputation for performing popular and classical works for brass to the highest possible standard.
Alan told our reporter it is always a pleasure to work with Stephen and to hear him play. He made the first ever CD recording of this remarkable instrument and I know he is looking forward to giving this recital in his home town.
Tickets are priced at £10 and are available from Beverley Tourist Information 01482 391672.
Stephen Binnington was born in Beverley and was a pupil at Longcroft School, a chorister and organ student under Alan Spedding at Beverley Minster and cellist in the East Riding County Youth Orchestra. He is now Director of the Farrington Music School near Shaftesbury, Dorset, where he administers and directs a busy programme of concerts, courses and events. His freelance career as an organist and piano accompanist has taken him to many parts of the UK and abroad. Following the concert at St Marys in April, Stephen will be giving his second recital in Westminster Abbey in London.
Tempus Brass are also making a very welcome return to Beverley having thrilled their audience as guests of the Beverley Chamber Choir. These five young players are all graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music, one of the leading conservatoires in Europe.
