Walking London Literally

...“was Patrick Kabanda, a Ugandan who started his training while still a chorister at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe, Uganda. Mr. Kabanda taught himself to play the piano and organ and is currently completing his master’s degree in organ at Juilliard in New York City. He played a stunning ‘Prelude and Fugue in C minor BWV 546’ by J.S. Bach, pieces by Medelssohn and Hovland and a lovely meditative piece ‘Tranquility’, which he wrote and premiered at this recital. If you plan on attending one of these concerts, be sure to arrive about 30 minutes early. Because we were so early, we were treated by being invited to sit in the Quire, where the archbishops sit when they gather at St. Paul’s. It was very easy to drift back 400 years and imagine what London was like back then. With this perch, we were surrounded by the organ pipes and exquisite music. Admission to St. Paul’s is free and they offer several services each day.”
