Louisa Lam - Accompanist

Our accompanist Jonathan Lee was appointed in September 2023. 

Jon became school organist at Christ’s Hospital in January 2023. He trained at the Junior Academy, in Stellenbosch and then as organ scholar at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Previous to CH he was school organist at Berkhamsted School and Organist of Berkhamsted Parish Church, where in 2016 he played for HM Queen Elizabeth II in a private concert.

Work as an accompanist and continuo player has included work at Leipzig Gewandhaus, on radio and television broadcasts and with many choirs, most recently including accompanying the Chiltern Chamber Choir and Tring Choral Society, and directing the Castle Choir of Berkhamsted. A regular visitor to South Africa, he was onetime Assistant Organist of the Diocesan College in Cape Town, and in 2017 directed the RSCM National Summer School in Johannesburg.

As well as an organist, Jonathan is a busy classical record producer, and has recently made recordings of Peterborough Cathedral Choir, Regents Opera, Amici Voices, Song in the City, London Gay Men’s Chorus, and multiple sets of exam syllabus recordings for ABRSM. He is also active as an editor of music and music books for a variety of publishing houses. Jonathan’s hobbies include travelling and the tasting of really excellent espresso and red wine.
