We are looking forward to Tim Harper coming to Bedale & District Methodist Church to give a recital on Friday 21st June at 7.30pm

Tim Harper has been Assistant Director of Music at Ripon Cathedral since September 2014. He trained as organ scholar successively at St Barnabas Church, Dulwich, Clare College, Cambridge, Canterbury Cathedral and St Paul's Cathedral; as a pupil of David Sanger, he gained the major prizes at ARCO and FRCO and was subsequently awarded the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

In 2010 he was appointed Assistant Director of Music at Birmingham Cathedral. During these years, he appeared with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, Ex Cathedra and the Birmingham Bach Choir, while studying organ with Andrew Fletcher and singing with Matthew Venner.

Alongside his cathedral duties, he enjoys recital, accompanying and continuo work and is accompanist to the early music course NORVIS. An interest in jazz keeps his improvisational instincts exercised, while also finding employment in settings as diverse as boat, restaurant, funeral, Spain, Harrogate, organ recitals, and jazz Eucharists at St Paul's Cathedral. In 2016 he developed an interest in transcription through his arrangement of A Colour Symphony by Arthur Bliss.
