On 28th April, Emma Brown gave a private concert with organist Geerten van de Wetering in the Hooglandse Kerk. This was a suprise concert for the retirement dinner of three members of the church committee.

The Hooglandse Kerk has recently acquired a restored Father Willis Organ from 1892. Emma and Geerten performed a programme of well-known contralto repertoire which was popular in the early nineteenth century, including “The Lost Chord,” “The Holy City,” “Bless this House,” and “I’ll Walk Beside You.” Emma plans to record this repertoire after the organ is completed later this year.
