Tim Kennedy -  tenor, piano accompanist and organist

Other Work


As a young chorister in Windsor, Tim started learning the organ at age 11.  Ten years later, he was organ scholar at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where the choir was conducted by Geoffrey Webber.  With the choir there he played live on BBC Radio 3 and made several recordings, and accompanied them on numerous foreign tours.  Since then, he has also been organ scholar at both Manchester and Chester Cathedrals, but now plays from time to time on a freelance basis, playing mainly for weddings, carol services and concerts.  He has been taught by a number of high-profile teachers, including Christopher Tolley, David Sanger and Nicholas Kynaston, and attended courses in Oundle and Edinburgh.  He holds the Fellowship diploma of the Royal College of Organists (FRCO).  He has given recitals in Manchester, Chester and Truro Cathedrals, Hexham Abbey and Southwell Minster, as well as churches and cathedrals in Europe and the United States.  



As far as teaching is concerned, Tim mainly enjoys working as a vocal coach for classical singers, particularly those studying at conservatoire or univerisity.  But with both singers and instrumentalists, he usually works towards specific projects: for example, he would be delighted to accompany and coach as required for an upcoming examination or concert.
