SEBASTIAN THOMSON

ACCOMPANIST

 

Sebastian Thomson was a chorister at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford before moving to Harrow School with the top music scholarship. He studied at Bristol University before holding positions at Chichester Cathedral, St Matthew's, Church Northampton and Eton College. From 2011 to 2016, Sebastian was Head of Academic Music at Bloxham School.  

Currently, Sebastian pursues a freelance career as a choral conductor and organist. Having studied with David Goode and David Briggs, recent solo engagements include recitals at Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, King’s College Cambridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Notre Dame, Paris. Sebastian is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and a prize winner in the College's Choral Training Diploma examination. 

Sebastian is gaining a reputation for commissioning new works. The Angels of Creation Commissions are a collection of organ works composed for and premiered by Sebastian. So far, David Bednall, Simon Whalley, Thomas Hewitt Jones, Neil Cox, John Hosking, Daniel Saleeb, and Francis Pott have written for this project. His recent CD Angels of Creation received a five-star review in 'Choir and Organ' and was made Editor's Choice in 'Organists' Review'.
