Rapturous applause greeted the end of pianist Ruth McGinley’s performance as she concluded the inaugural concert in the CCCMSP Group of Parishes’ new series of ‘Christ Church First Wednesday Recitals’ series.

Ruth is a world renowned pianist and around one hundred people were in Christ Church on Wednesday 1st November 2023 to enjoy a programme which ranged from compositions by Rachmaninoff and Philip Glass, through to Mary Lou Williams’ ‘What’s Your Story, Morning Glory?’ and a track from Ruth’s latest album, ‘Aura’.

CCCMSP’s new Recital Ministry comprises a dozen concerts in Christ Church, Derry – on the first Wednesday of each month – all of which will be free to attend. The next event, on Wednesday 6th December, will feature the U3A choir.
