Our Répétiteur:
Jem Lowther
Jem Lowther is only the ninth full time accompanist since the choir was formed in 1936.

Jem was raised in Northamptonshire and took his first organ lessons at All Saints' Church aged eleven. Educated as a Music Scholar at Eton College, Jem then spent his gap-year working as an organist in Washington D.C. and New York City. He then took up an Organ Scholarship at Corpus Christi College Oxford, where he graduated with a first-class degree in Music.

After Oxford, Jem was appointed Director of Music at All Saints' Church, Northampton. In this role he has led the choir through successive periods of change and overseen the restoration of the church's splendid gallery organ. The church maintains two separate treble lines as well as a successful choral scholarship programme. These choruses are composed of youngsters from twenty-two different schools. Between them, they sing at least three choral services each week.

Jem is also a Musician in Residence with the David Ross Educational Trust, which sees him working directly in schools, both primary and secondary. He holds an ABRSM diploma in solo piano performance and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.
