Hewson Memorial Organ Recitals 2015 at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin

The Wonderous Machine

St Patrick’s Cathedral Dublin has announced details of the Hewson Memorial Organ Recitals 2015.

Heather Hewson,
daughter of George Hewson and Mabel Home, a well–known Dublin actress,
died in
1995. In her will she left a generous legacy to fund the George Hewson
Memorial Recitals, directing that they be given by organists of
international repute in memory of her father. To mark the twentieth
anniversary of her passing the cathedral has organised an impressive
line–up of some of the finest young organists from Ireland, the UK and
Europe.

This year the recitals will be relayed to audiences on a
big screen. The addition of the big screen, revealing the hitherto
hidden performers and showing off the Cathedral’s wonderful Father Wills
organ, is an exciting innovation that will offer concertgoers an even
richer experience of an already compelling line up of well known and
accomplished performers.

Admission to the concerts is free and there will be a retiring collection.

The line up for this year’s recitals is as follows:

Sunday 12 April at 8.00pm
