Organ Scholar

We are seeking an organ scholar for the academic year 2020-21.

The Organ Scholar will be expected to accompany services, play voluntaries, supervise choristers, and assist the Head of Music and their Assistant in various ways. Depending on the Organ Scholar’s skills and experience, additional responsibilities may include administrative work, choir training and directing, giving recitals and learning by observation and page-turning at more important rehearsals and services. The Organ Scholar may also get opportunities to sing with the choir but this is not an essential part of the role. The Organ Scholar is by default accompanist to the St Philip’s Singers, the Cathedral’s adult voluntary choir.
