Join us for the first Raleigh Society Wednesday lunchtime recital of term. PhD student Anne Thomas, (cello) and Selwyn College organ scholar Adam Field (piano, will be performing the following programme:

J.S. Bach, ‘Allemande’ and ‘Gigue’ from the Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major
Debussy, Reverie, arranged for cello and piano

ANNE THOMAS recently completed her PhD in Plant Sciences at Newnham College. She has enjoyed playing cello in local ensembles, including Cambridge Graduate Orchestra, and is also a poet. She will soon be moving to France to pursue postdoctoral ecology research.

ADAM FIELD is in his second year at Selwyn College, Cambridge, reading for a degree in Music. He holds the Percy Young Senior Organ Scholarship there, primarily accompanying the choir in its three weekly services, and assisting the Director of Music, Sarah MacDonald, in the running and direction of the choir. With Selwyn Choir, he has been engaged in concerts and services across the country and internationally, including live on Radio 3 and on Radio 4. Alongside this, he is the Junior Secretary of Selwyn College Music Society, organising its weekly Sunday evening concerts and Thursday lunchtime organ recital series, among other concerts and events. He has previously held posts at Croydon Minster and Portsmouth Cathedral, and is currently studying the organ with Stephen Farr and Ann Elise Smoot. When not on the organ bench, he can be found variously on the piano stool, most often as a collaborative pianist, in a choir, singing either Alto, Tenor or Bass (whichever is in shortest supply), or in an orchestra, normally upstage right on fourth horn. Adam is a prize-winning Associate of the Royal College of Organists, and is working towards his Fellowship.

Please do join us for what promises to be a fantastic recital. Entry is free, and all are welcome.
