Local organist Birgitta Birchall will be giving the lunchtime recital in a St Albans church next Tuesday. August 19, as part of a series organised by the New School of Organ Studies.

Birgitta studied music at Gothenburg University in her native Sweden and was active as a teacher, organist, choir leader and music director in the Gothenburg region until she came to the UK in 1986.

She left her post at St Albans Girls School a few years ago to pursue a freelance career, tutoring, performing and examining. She also started a tutoring business with a colleague. Birgitta regularly plays for services at Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans.

Next Tuesday’s recital at the Marlborough Road Methodist Church begins at 12.30pm and light refreshments will be available.

Admission is free, with a retiring collection in aid of the New School of Organ Studies and the church. For further details, contact (01727) 865979 or e.mail <>.
