Chichester Cathedral Lunchtime Concerts series: Thomas Simpson, organ

Thomas Simpson is the organ scholar at Chichester Cathedral, where he plays for daily services alongside accompanying local choirs and playing for events in the cathedral and elsewhere.

Thomas was a chorister in New College Choir before going on to Magdalen College School, Oxford. He held the post of organ scholar to the Cathedral Singers of Christ Church, Oxford for two years, playing in the cathedral’s live-streamed Platinum Jubilee service and on tour in Cologne Cathedral. He has given recitals at Romsey Abbey, Sherborne Abbey and Merton College, Oxford.

In October Thomas will begin a music degree at Cambridge as organ scholar at Trinity College. Thomas also enjoys composing, playing the cello, and sailing.


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. We suggest a minimum donation of £3 per person, with Gift Aid applied if possible.
