      Postponed: Friends of St Laurence's, Chorley | Samuel Austin (organ)

      Sam Austin hails from Liverpool and studied the organ from an early age. At 10, he secured an appointment at Huyton Parish Church, beginning organ lessons at Liverpool Cathedral with Ian Wells a few years later.
      Sam's undergraduate degree was taken in Organ Performance at the Birmingham Conservatoire, where his teachers included Henry Fairs, Daniel Moult and David Saint. He then embarked on postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music Manchester where he won the Organ Recital Prize in 2009.
      Whilst in Birmingham, he held positions of Assistant Organist at the Birmingham Oratory, Organ Scholar of Birmingham Symphony Hall and Sub Organist at St Peter the Apostle, Royal Leamington Spa.
      In 2007, Sam was awarded the year long post of Organ Scholar at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. At its conclusion he took the short journey along Hope Street to become Organ Scholar at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, the first person to hold both positions successively. He also holds the distinction of performing an organ recital in each cathedral during the same afternoon, cycling between venues. In 2011, Sam moved to London to take up the position of Assistant Director of Music at Aldenham School and later took the positions of Director of Music at St Paul’s Church, Mill Hill, NW7 2012-2019 and Organist at St Alphage, Burnt Oak 2018-2019. In 2019, Sam relocated to the East Riding of Yorkshire for his appointment as Director of Music at Pocklington School.
