Alasdair started singing in the choir at St. George’s in February 1982. He studied the organ at St. Dunstan College in Catford, and was organ student at St. George’s from 1985 to 1987. He passed his ARCO exams in 1986. He was organ scholar of Downing College, Cambridge, from 1987 to 1990, where he read Music and History. While at Downing, he conducted the college choirs and orchestra, and sang in a number of university chamber choirs.


Since graduating, Alasdair has been assistant organist at a number of London churches, before returning to St. George’s, where he now plays regularly. He has also accompanied various choral societies on tours to Italy, Austria, France and the Czech Republic.
