THE LAST NIGHT
With Gary Ryan and Canterbury Cathedral Girls' Choir
SUNDAY 5 JULY - ST. JAMES CHURCH
Gary Ryan is one of the world’s leading exponents of the guitar and has performed to international critical acclaim for over twenty years, winning praise for his formidable technique, outstanding musicianship and entertainingly diverse programmes.
In 2013 he became the first guitarist since John Williamsin 1983 to be awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Music in recognition of his contribution to the instrument (and only the fourth guitarist ever to receive this honour, other recipients being Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream).
His celebrated guitar compositions (regularly broadcast on Classic FM) have broadened the instrument’s appeal by combining traditional classical guitar technique with more contemporary guitar styles and a rich variety of musical influences from around the world.
CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL GIRLS' CHOIR
Since its formation in 2014, the Canterbury Cathedral Girls’ Choir has become a leading light in the British choral music landscape, and continues to develop an international reputation. As well as performing at regular Cathedral services, the choir gives concerts both at home and further afield. Its recordings, released by Decca Records, Signum Classics and BBC Music Magazine, have received unanimous critical acclaim.
At their debut performance in the Egerton Festival, they will perform an engaging and wide-ranging repertoire of pieces both sacred and secular.
