Sayjin Park

Sayjin Park, Organist The Korean organist and Feis Ceoil prizewinner, Sayjin Park, gave a delightful performance of works by Buxtehude, Liszt, Messiaen and Bach last Monday night. Sayjin is a student of Professor David Adams (father of three of our recent choristers) and she is the organist in Adelaide Road. David introduced us to all of the pieces first and then Sayjin played without a break, which suited the music. The small but appreciative audience gave her a well-deserved applause and congratulations. In the audience were Sayjin’s husband and young daughter, who enjoyed the concert very much too. It was great to hear the wonderful organ of Saint Bartholomew’s featuring in this concert series. The final concert of the series is on Monday July 13th, and I would like to encourage as many parishioners as possible to attend. The series is yet another superb achievement of our Director of Music, Fraser Wilson, whose energy knows no bounds. He has certainly made a great start in his objective to develop Saint Bartholomew’s as a venue for great music.
