A warm welcome to Will

2BB4613B-E0A4-4AF4-8683-0329BF760678Our new accompanist for season 2017-18 is Will Fairbairn, whose tenure as organ scholar at Truro Cathedral started in September.

Will read music and was the organ scholar at St Catharine’s College Cambridge. While there, he played under Edward Wickham for both the College Choir and the Girls’ Choir, accompanying them in their weekly round of services as well as for radio broadcasts, recordings and tours across Europe and the Far East.

In his third year, he was also the repetiteur for Cambridge University Musical Society Chorus, playing under Stephen Cleobury, which included accompanying their tour to Rome.

Before taking up his scholarship at Truro Cathedral – and his seat at our rehearsals – he had just finished working in the music department at Sevenoaks School, while also holding the organ scholarship at All Saints’ Fulham, in southwest London.

We can’t wait to see how the year unfolds with Will at the piano – and harpsichord and organ!
