Chipping Sodbury soprano on song at church recital

A YOUNG soprano from Chipping Sodbury has been invited to sing at an organ recital in St Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol.

Emma Sainsbury, 21, will make her debut appearance at the church on Thursday, May 10, in the lunchtime concert.

The programme will feature the church’s director of music, Andrew Kirk, playing L'Ascension by Olivier Messiaen on the Harrison and Harrison pipe organ that is highly regarded as a masterpiece of Edwardian craftsmanship.

Emma, who will sing three pieces, said she felt honoured to be invited to sing at the “special” St Mary Redcliffe.

The 45-minute recital starts at 1.15pm, with tea, coffee and biscuits served from 1pm. Admission is free with a retiring collection.
