Nicholas Freestone - Accompanist

From September 2018 Worcester Festival Choral Society is delighted to welcome Nicholas Freestone as our Accompanist.

Nicholas was appointed as Worcester Cathedral's New Assistant Organist / Assistant Director of Music from St Paul’s Cathedral, where he was Acting Sub-Assistant Organist. Prior to that he was the William and Irene Miller Organ Scholar of St Paul's Cathedral.

Nicholas joined St Paul's Cathedral following two years at St Albans Cathedral, having previously held scholarships at Wells Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey.

On his appointment, Worcester Cathedral’s Director of Music Dr Peter Nardone welcomed Nicholas as follows:

“I am very pleased to announce that Nicholas Freestone has been appointed to succeed Christopher Allsop as Assistant Director of Music and Assistant Organist at Worcester Cathedral. There was a very strong field of applicants and those on the appointment panel were unanimous in their decision. I look forward to welcoming Nicholas to Worcester”.

And so do we at WFCS!
