A native of Michigan, Justin pursues a diverse career as an organist, pianist, and conductor. He completed degrees at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, USA, and the Cleveland Institute of Music, where his teachers included Ken Cowan and Todd Wilson.
Justin is currently Sub-Assistant Organist at Worcester Cathedral. In addition to his duties with the Cathedral Choir, he is Choirmaster of the Cathedral’s Voluntary Choir, which is both the oldest cathedral voluntary choir in the country and the last one to use only boy trebles.
Before arriving in Worcester, he held various positions at Blackburn Cathedral, St Albans Cathedral, Ripon Cathedral, and Winchester Cathedral. Whilst completing his MMus, he was Director of Music at Christ Episcopal Church in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where he conducted the church’s choirs and administered the concert series.
As a soloist Justin has performed in numerous cathedrals; most recently Winchester, Hereford, Truro, and Worcester. In addition to his work as an accompanist, he has given performances of Rheinberger’s second organ concerto with members of the Toledo Symphony, and the Heights Chamber Orchestra.
