Our final summer Organ Recital takes place this Sunday, July 30.

Join Manchester Cathedral for final Organ Recital of the summer on 30 July at 3pm with Concert Organist Matthew Owens

Matthew is Founder and Music Director of the Ulster Consort, Northern Ireland’s newest professional vocal and instrumental ensemble, Conductor of the Belfast City Chorus, and Associate Director of the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys in Michigan, USA.

Previously, he was the director of music at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh, and Wells Cathedral. Under his leadership, Wells Cathedral Choir was named by an international jury for Gramophone as the best choir in the world with children, and the sixth greatest overall. From 2019-2022, he was Director of Music of Belfast Cathedral, where he re-established the choir as a professional adult ensemble, winning international acclaim for its work.

Matthew has championed new music, particularly of British composers, conducting over 200 world premieres, including works by leading composers ranging from Jools Holland to Sir James MacMillan. As a composer himself, Matthew is published by Oxford University Press and Novello.

This is a free event and no ticket is required.
