Harpsichord Recital, Gilbert Rowland – May 20th, 2023

Our event on May 20th will be a recital and Q&A session with Gilbert Rowland, who the British Harpsichord Society describe thus: ‘Gilbert Rowland is one of Europe’s most senior and accomplished exponents of the harpsichord’. He has also recorded numerous CDs.

The recital will take place at 2.30pm at St Augustine’s, Honor Oak Park (also known as One Tree Hill). The church is in the wooded hillside on the north side of Honor Oak Park, served by P4 and P12 bus routes (stop at Hengrave Road) and BR / Overground Honor Oak Park. Cars can be parked in the driveway leading up to the church.

You are invited to ask questions at the end of the concert and refreshments will then be served.
