To celebrate the recently completed restoration of our organ, internationally renowned organist David Briggs brings a spine-chilling screening of the classic 1920 Gothic horror Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde to Christ Church, Bath, with live improvised organ accompaniment on Sunday 8th September at 7:30pm.
David Briggs, concert organist and composer, is Artist in Residence at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City. Recently hailed by the New York Times as “one of our finest organists,” David has built a world-wide reputation for making organ music exciting, inspiring, and accessible to a broad and diverse range of listeners, helping ensure that present and future generations will appreciate, be moved and even changed by this supreme instrument. Described by Andrew McGregor of BBC Radio 3 as a “phenomenal improviser,” in addition to more traditional organ recitals David regularly performs improvised accompaniment to classic silent movies of the 1920s. These concerts often bring in audiences ranging from age 5 to 95!
Tickets are available from Bath Box Office. Doors open at 7pm and drink will be available for purchase.
