Abbey Sub-Organist Peter Holder presents music by Austrian organist-composer Franz Danksagmüller as well as works by Liszt, Saint-Saëns and Alain in this penultimate Festival concert.

Fast establishing a reputation as one of the most exciting organists of his generation, Peter Holder has held the post of Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey since October 2017. Alongside his Abbey duties as principal organist for the daily services, he is increasingly in demand as a solo performer and makes his BBC Proms debut this summer. He regularly broadcasts for radio and television and is an organ tutor at the Royal Academy of Music.
