Event Details

Jeremiah Stephenson is rapidly establishing himself as a organ recitalist and teacher on the international scene, with performance invitations across Europe, North America and Sweden. His playing has been broadcast on television and radio in the UK, France and the Czech Republic, where in 2016 he won first prize in the Petr Eben International Organ Competition.

A prize winning graduate of the University of Cambridge and Royal Academy of Music, Jeremiah continued his studies at Toulouse Conservatoire supported by the Nicholas Danby Trust. His teachers have included Gillian Weir, Susan Landale, Michel Bouvard and Philippe Lefebvre. He recently graduated from the Certificate Programme in Injury Preventative Keyboard Technique at Salem College, studying piano literature and pedagogy with Barbara Lister-Sink.

Jeremiah combines his recital work with the posts of Associate Director of Music at All Saints Margaret Street and Organ Education Lead at St Paul’s Cathedral. As an award-winning Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, and one of their youngest Accredited Teachers, Jeremiah’s particular passion is introducing children to the organ and building with them an appreciation of the instrument’s diverse repertoire.
