Exeter Cathedral has announced that Heather Easting has been appointed Organ Scholar for the 2019-20 academic year.
Heather is currently graduate Organ Scholar at Croydon Minster, where she works with Director of Music Ronny Krippner (himself a former member of the choral foundation at Exeter Cathedral). She will take up her position in September 2019, working closely with Director of Music Timothy Noon, and Assistant Director of Music Timothy Parsons.
Commenting on the appointment, Timothy Noon said:
“We are delighted that Heather will be joining us next year. She stood out in a strong field of candidates at the recent audition day, and I’m looking forward to working with her during her time in Exeter.”
The Organ Scholarship at Exeter Cathedral provides the opportunity for experienced organists to gain experience of a busy music department, whilst living in the bustling university city of Exeter. The Cathedral recently received a grant from the Friends of Cathedral Music to help endow the award for the future.
