Chichester Cathedral Lunchtime Concerts series: Jeremiah Stephenson, organ

Chichester Cathedral’s popular lunchtime concerts take place on Tuesdays at 1.10pm during term time, in the spectacular setting of the Cathedral Nave. They are free and last approximately 50 minutes.

There is a retiring collection.

One of the UK’s busiest young organists, Jeremiah’s work has taken him across Europe and to America, performing in venues such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Church of the Advent (Boston), St Peter’s Evangelical Church ( Görlitz) Opava Cathedral and Bratislava castle. His work has been broadcast on television and radio in the UK, France and the Czech Republic, appearing alongside the BBC singers on Radio 3 and playing a televised recital as part of the Janáček May International Music Festival in 2018. 

Most recently, Jeremiah joined the French chamber choir Dulci Jubilo performing Escaich’s Trois Motets in the presence of the composer, which was recorded for broadcast. Upcoming projects include recitals in venues such as Uppsala Cathedral, Sées Cathedral and Buckfast Abbey, as well as further concerts and a CD recording with the Bettancourt prize-winning choir La Maîtrise de Toulouse.

Jeremiah combines his recital work with the post of Associate Director of Music at All Saints Margaret Street, and various educational projects. As an award-winning Fellow of the Royal College of Organists, and one of their youngest Accredited Teachers, Jeremiah is regularly called upon to give masterclasses on a variety of subjects and help students prepare for diploma examinations. Jeremiah’s particular passion is introducing children to the organ and building with them an appreciation of the instrument’s diverse repertoire as well as techniques for learning and performing that cross-over with their other subjects.  He currently teaches four groups of state school students, whose lessons are sponsored by Inspiring Organists (part of the RCO’s outreach), Union Chapel Islington, the Church of Our Lady St John’s Wood and the St John Kennington Organ Studentship Scheme.
