Lunchtime Recital

Benjamin O’Riordan – Baritone

Sammy Li – Piano

Wednesday  13 March 2024 – 1 pm to 1:40 pm

On, Wednesday 13 March, we had the great pleasure of welcoming, Benjamin O’Riordan a former Brentwood Cathedral chorister, (and Brentwood School student), who still sings here as a lay clerk, and who is presently studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Benjamin sang a beautiful programme of Lieder by Schubert, Schumann and Brahms.

He was accompanied by Sammy Li on the piano. Sammy, who is also a former student from Brentwood School, is currently studying mathematics and philosophy at the University of Bristol, where she holds the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship in Music. Music is clearly still a very important part of her life!

Sammy gave us a superb rendition of Schumann’s second piano sonata (1st movement)
