Organist

Iain Harvey, born in Leicestershire in 1977, is a professionally trained musician and organist available for funerals, weddings and recitals. He comes from a family of musicians, most notably his uncle, Roger Harvey a professional Trombonist leading the London Brass and working with many of the world's orchestras including the London Symphony and Principal Trombone of the BBC Symphony.

Following singing lessons in 1987 through his teacher's encouragement, Iain joined the choir of St. James the Greater, Leicester. During this time he became interested in the organ both as a musical instrument and as a musical machine. Whilst remaining in the choir, Iain first took organ lessons at Leicester Cathedral and later at St. James the Greater.



Iain's devotion to his continued religious and musical experience of Christianity, the organ repertoire and great choral tradition equips him with the understanding of the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Free Church traditions having worked in all throughout his musical life. He has experience of accompanying services and masses for all denominations in Christendom.

Iain is devoted to promoting the organ as a musical instrument to a wider audience including in education. He displays the organ's ability to provide secular as well as serious repertoire.

Iain regularly gives organ recitals and in 2015 returned to having tuition to increase his musical awareness and technical ability. He passed with distinction, in November 2017, the Associate of the Trinity College of Music, London, diploma playing the Prelude & Fugue in E flat major by J.S. Bach, Clair de Lune by L. Vierne and Sonata II by F. Mendelssohn. He is currently preparing for the Trinity Licentiate diploma.

If a church, crematorium, chapel or any type of venue does not have a pipe organ we are able to supply and set up our three stop continuo instrument along with Iain Harvey.
