Jubilee Organ Recital: James Luxton

Monday 29th May 2017, 3.00pm - 4.00pm

As the Cathedral reaches its 50th Anniversary, so does its famous Grand Organ. Built by Walkers and completed just hours before the consecration in 1967, it has since been played by some of the most celebrated organists in the world. This year, we’ll pay tribute to the Cathedral’s much-loved Grand Organ in a special series of 50th anniversary recitals.

For the second in our series, we present James Luxton, the Metropolitan Cathedral’s very own Assistant Director of Music.

A graduate of the Birmingham Conservatoire, James has obtained both the Associate and Fellowship diplomas of the Royal College of Organists, winning multiple prizes. Prior to taking up his present position James held posts at St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham and Worcester Cathedral.
