St Peter’s to host concert

THE director of a world famous choir will present a concert celebrating the centenary of a Sudbury church organ later this month.

Stephen Cleobury, who has been the director of music for the choir of Kings College in Cambridge since 1982, will give a recital at St Peter’s on Market Hill on June 29.

The event will mark the 100th anniversary of the church’s Grand Lewis 3 organ, which was first played in 1911.

Stuart Letten, a member of the Friends of St Peter’s, said: “Sudbury is extremely fortunate to be able to hear Stephen play as he maintains a very busy schedule of concerts, tours, recording and broadcasts.

“He is probably among the top five organists in the world and it will be an honour to have him at St Peter’s.”

Admission for the recital, which starts at 7.30pm, will be £10 on the door.

Another concert celebrating the organ’s centenary will be held at 3pm on June 26, when Peter Crompton, director at the Music Royal Hospital School in Holbrook, will give a recital. Admission will be £5 on the door.
