Biography

For the past year, Alex has been working as Organ Scholar of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, where his duties have involved training the probationers, as well as accompanying and directing the choir on a regular basis. In this time he has been awarded his FRCO (playing) under the tutelage of Ann Elise Smoot.

Prior to Windsor, he was organist at St Lawrence Church, Seal (a post he assumed at the age of 14), during which time he gained the highest marks in the country for his playing in the ARCO examination. Heavily involved with local music, Alex was associated with over a dozen amateur ensembles during his time in Kent, including as Manager of The Lydian Orchestra. A firm believer in the positive impact music can have on society, Alex has raised over £7,000 for various charities through his music making, and has gone to extensive effort to bring music to children in primary schools.

Alex discovered his love for choral music as a chorister at King's College, Cambridge - a passion which has grown stronger ever since. When he was 16 years old, he founded The Tudeley Singers, and has since conducted them in services at several different cathedrals (including Westminster Abbey, where he was the youngest person ever to conduct a service). He has also organised and directed a number of concerts with the choir, which have included works by Fauré, Duruflé and Britten.

Exiting times lie ahead for Alex as he moves to Cambridge next month. His scholarship at St John's College will mean working with the world-renowned choir on a daily basis, as he studies for a degree in music at the University.
