He has held Organ Scholarships under Christopher Robinson and George Guest, and worked at Wells, Truro and Gloucester Cathedrals. Other recent positions have included Artistic Director of the Gloucester Three Choirs Festival and Musical Director of the Gloucester Choral Society. He has worked regularly with some of the UK’s leading orchestras.
