We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Jonathan Vaughn as Associate Director of Music. Jonny comes to us from The Cathedral of All Saints in Albany, NY, where he has served as Interim Associate Organist since February. Previously, Jonathan was Assistant Organist at Wells Cathedral in the UK for many years, where he rehearsed daily with choristers, and taught the organ at Wells Cathedral School. Prior to that, he served as Assistant Director of Music at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
Among Jonny’s significant accomplishments are his organ scholarships. He is a former organ scholar of St. John’s College, Cambridge, St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, and Croydon Parish Church. Jonny became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists at the early age of sixteen and has won top prizes in organ playing from The Royal College of Organists. Jonny’s principal teachers include Simon Williams and Dame Gillian Weir. He has performed and recorded extensively, both as a soloist, and as accompanist.
Jonny’s high level of musicianship and experience in nurturing the talents of singers of all ages will be an incredible asset for Christ Church Music as we continue our strategic growth. Jonnny will start at Christ Church Greenwich on September 16, 2017.
