Wednesday 21 September, 2022 – 1 pm
On Wednesday 21 September, after our brief summer break, we are delighted to welcome Lithuanian organist Vladimir Antonov-Charsky to restart our series of lunchtime recitals at the Cathedral.
Vladimir is the 1st place winner in the prestigious Juozas Naujalis Organists Competition, in Lithuania, and was awarded a commendation by the Mayor of Vilnius Remigijus Šimašius.
He is currently studying at the Royal College of Music, London for a Master of Music, where his studies are supported by the Richard Newton Scarth Award and a bursary assistance from the Royal College of Organists including the R. J. Pitcher Scholarship and Gwendoline Minshull-Jones Scholarship.
He completed his undergraduate degree in Lithuania and also studied at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague through the Erasmus exchange programme.
Vladimir has held organ scholarships at All Saints’ Church, Fulham and at St. George’s Church, Beckenham.
He has also collaborated with the English composer James Young on his band’s two latest album releases, and presented online recitals on YouTube during the coronavirus lockdowns.
