Simon Russell.

Simon was born in Liverpool.  He studied organ at Birkenhead School with Timothy Lawford and then at Cambridge as Organ Scholar at St. Catharine's College, where he continued studies with Gillian Weir and the late Peter Le Huray.  After Cambridge he was appointed Assistant Organist at Chester Cathedral but decided after a while to keep music as a hobby and gain fortune from computer keyboards.

He was firstly accompanist and then Music Director of the Hoylake Choral Society from 1982 until he moved, in 2000, to Nantwich where he is Organist at St Mary’s Parish Church.  

He is an annual recitalist at Chester Cathedral and is on the ‘reserve’ organist list covering holiday periods and other absences.  He is also in demand as an organ tutor and has many Associated Board and other pupil distinctions and diploma successes to his credit.

Simon has recently been made an Honorary Member of the RSCM.

Simon was appointed accompanist to Nantwich Choral Society in 2010.
