New Organist and Assistant Director of Music Appointed

We are very pleased to announce that Mr Nigel Spooner will be joining our parish music team
in mid-September. Nigel is a highly accomplished and experienced organist and musician.
He is Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, a former chorister and deputy organist at Bath Abbey,
a past finalist is the prestigious St Albans International Organ Competition, and has played and sung
in various parish churches, including Blackburn Cathedral. More recently he has been Organist and 
Director of Music at Longridge Parish Church, and has been deputising at other parish churches
in the diocese. He is an examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music, and
regularly features as the organist on Radio 4's Daily Prayer service. He undertakes a 
variety of accompaniment and concert work, including concert tours with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. When he's not involved in music he teaches Chemistry, and will soon be joining the staff of Bolton School. We look forward to welcoming Nigel in September.
