Saturday Brunch Organ Recital:

Magne Draagen (St Michael's Hamburg)

The first recital in this year's Saturday Brunch Series.  These organ proms bring leading concert organists from across Europe to the Temple Church to perform on its famous organ. A special opportunity to step into the tranquility of the Temple at the weekend and experience this magnificent instrument in the hands of celebrated international recitalists not often heard in the UK.  The distinguished musician Magne Draagen is organist of one of Northern Germany's most important baroque churches, St Michael's Hamburg.
