nr_13-11-30_stephen_006_webStephen Cleobury will play an organ recital at St. Paul’s on Friday, February 26, at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to his work with one of the world’s most famous choirs, Mr. Cleobury’s service as Director of Music at King’s College has brought him into fruitful relationships with many leading orchestras and soloists, among them the Academy of Ancient Music and the Philharmonia. Between 1995 and 2007 he was Chief Conductor of the BBC Singers and since then has been Conductor Laureate. From 1983 to 2009 he served as Conductor of the Cambridge University Musical Society, one of the UK’s oldest music societies, a role in which he has not only conducted many orchestral works, but most of the major works for chorus and orchestra.

At St. Paul’s, Mr. Cleobury will play works by Bach, Elgar and Messiaen.

His concert is made possible through the generosity of a grant from the Charles H. Teare and Clifford K. Kern Music Fund at the Cleveland Foundation. The concert is open to the public. A freewill offering will support music programs at St. Paul’s.
