Bells will ring out over Perth with festive recital in city kirk
Following on from a programme of wartime music on Remembrance Sunday, a second recital on the carillon in St John’s Kirk, Perth, this month will help get folk in the mood for Christmas.
Dr Ian Cassells, the Perth city carillonneur will play a programme of festive music and family favourites on Friday at 12.30pm on the bells of the kirk.
The church will be open to the public so that people can hear the music as well as see Dr Cassells playing the carillon on the large screens in the kirk. The bells can also be heard from the streets and cafes around the kirk where copies of his programme will be available. The recital will be informal and it will be possible to come in and out of St John’s throughout the performance.
