Organ Music at Namirembe Cathedral

imageThe second organ recital on the tour was scheduled for July 2nd at Namirembe Cathedral, where I first began organ playing at age sixteen. Mr. Saul Bulega, secretary of the cathedral choir, introduced me to audience, which included students from Kingís College Budo, the cathedral choir members, teachers, diplomats from various embassies, family members and regular church members. I spoke to the audience about the repertoire that included Kerg-Elert, Hovland, Bach and Langlais. It was challenging to play on the instrument because it was still under renovation, but the audience seemed to have enjoyed every bit of the performance.

“The New Vision”, Uganda’s leading newspaper, wrote an article about this performance on 17th July 2000.
