Michael Stewart, Organist and Director of Music at Wellington’s Cathedral of St Paul, will give a recital of French music to celebrate Bastille Day on Friday 12 July at 12.45pm as part of the Cathedral’s TGIF series. The recital will feature music by Grigny, Langlais, Messiaen and Balbastre and all proceeds will go towards a fundraiser for brain surgery for an Auckland father.

Robbie Ritchie is 33 years old, a father of two, and a loving husband. But he's got a ticking time bomb in his head.

Robbie has the largest and most dangerous form of Arterio Venous Malformation (AVM) in the right frontal parietal lobe of his brain. The walls of the veins in Robbie's head are so enlarged that they could literally burst at any time, which could be fatal.

Prof. Valavanis of the International Neuroscience Institute in Hanover, Germany is confident that he will able to embolise Robbie's AVM successfully. However, the family have only six weeks to raise $200,000 to pay for it.

Music by Grigny, Langlais, Messiaen and Balbastre. Vive la France!
