Graham is an accoplished organist, well known for his many commitments in the North West, North Wales, and on BBC Radio 4.cc
He studied the organ at Worksop College in Nottinghamshire, and subsequently at the Royal College of Music in Manchester, before being appointed Boddington Open Scholar at St Ann's Church. On graduating he also received the Alice Shawcross prize in church music, and more recently the Brook Memorial Prize from the Royal College of Organists.
Appointed as Assistant Organist at Chester Cathedral in 1989, he played a key role in the musical life of the city, both in and out of the Cathedral, until 1998, when he took up the position of Organist and Master of Choristers at St Asaph Cathedral, where he remained until 2003.
As an freelance musician since 2004, Graham has played many organ recitals in the UK, Europe and beyond, as well as regular appearances for the Daily Service on Radio 4.combining this with his appointment as Director of Music at Bangor Cathedral between 2009 and 2014.
He now is a visiting tutor in organ at the University of Wales in Bangor, as well as Conductor of both Colwyn Bay, and St Asaph Choral Societies.
Having played many times with both the Halle, and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestras, we are delighted to welcome him to Tarvin, for what I an sure will be a memorable concert.
