In this closing concert of the 2021 Summer Organ Festival, Westminster Abbey Sub-Organist Peter Holder plays his own transcription of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals in the composer’s 100th anniversary year. 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 made his BBC Proms debut in 2019. He regularly broadcasts for radio and television and is an organ tutor at the Royal Academy of Music.
