Grahl named director of music at Peterborough Cathedral

16 May 2014

Steven Grahl is to succeed Robert Quinney as director of music at Peterborough Cathedral. He will take up his new post in September 2014. 

In addition to being organist and director of music at St Marylebone Parish Church, London, and principal conductor of Guildford Chamber Choir, since 2007 Mr Grahl has been assistant organist at New College, Oxford, to which Quinney has just moved as director of music, following the retirement of Edward Higginbottom.

The Very Revd Charles Taylor, Dean of Peterborough, said: ‘When Robert was appointed to New College Oxford we knew he was going to one of the top musical foundations in the country, so we are very pleased to have attracted some traffic in the opposite direction! … Steven is a man of energy and vision and we look forward to working with him.’

Steven Grahl is a prize-winning graduate of Magdalen College, Oxford, and the Royal Academy of Music, of which he was elected an Associate in 2010. He was an interpretation finalist in the International Organ Competitions at St Albans (UK) in 2011, and in Dudelange (Luxembourg) in 2013. He is a Junior Fellow of Birmingham Conservatoire, chairman of the Association of Assistant Cathedral Organists, and a member of the Oxford University Faculty of Music.
