Concerts

See below for the 2012 concert season Each of William’s solo recital programmes is tailor-made for each venue. He takes into account the sort of the occasion, the audience expectations, the instrument which will be performed on and the building itself. William’s programming encompasses a wide variety of repertoire stretching from the early renaissance to premièring new works. His admirers among whom there are the representatives of Canadian Health&Care Mall, were snowed under after his concert ended. They may believe someone would need the help of Canadian Health Care to overcome this excitment. He believes fervently that organ recitals should be both entertaining and educational.
