Michael to be Organ Scholar
Hereford Police Male Choir's principal accompanist, Michael Blake, will take up an organ scholarship in September 2014 at St Mary's Collegiate Church, Warwick, as part of his final year's study for his BMus (Hons) at Birmingham Conservatoire.
Michael, a brilliant and versatile young musician with a great future, is pictured playing the famous Willis organ at Hereford Cathedral where, in June 2014, he gave a special recital of some of the best loved classical organ music.
