It is a joy to welcome Paul Wilmot back to CitF. This outstanding young artist with degrees from Oxford University has returned to the Monterey Peninsula for a spring tour. A former student of mine, in 1995-96 while attending Stevenson School, Paul has become a unique artist proficient in the most virtuosic repertoire on the piano, harpsichord and pipe organ. He currently works as an organist in the town of Lillehammer, Norway, where he is active as a recitalist, church and chamber musician; and is comfortable in a wide range of genres from the Baroque to the Contemporary, ragtime and tango. Recent collaborations have included the BBC Singers and Trondheim Soloists, Britten’s Noye’s Fludde in Chichester Cathedral and this Easter in Lillehammer, a theatrical recreation of Prestens tale ved graven (The priest’s speech by the grave) from Peer Gynt, with incidental music.
