Alex Berry

 

Alex Berry (MA Cantab), FRCO, began his musical training as a chorister at Lichfield Cathedral. He was educated at Queens' College, Cambridge, where he was also Organ Scholar. During his final year at Cambridge, he held the posts of Organ Scholar to King's Voices (the mixed-voice undergraduate choir at King's College) and accompanist to CUMS Chorus.

After graduating, Alex spent two years as Assistant Organist to Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir, followed by a further two years as Assistant Organist at Magdalen College, Oxford. At Magdalen, Alex divided his time between playing for daily services in the College Chapel during university term time and, as Tutor to the Choristers at Magdalen College School, taught a programme of theory and musicianship to the choristers. 

Alex took up the position of Organist and Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral in January 2017. Aged 27, he is the youngest cathedral organist working in the Church of England. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, and has given recitals in venues across the UK, as well as in Germany, Denmark, and Russia.
