New Assistant Director of Music at Leicester Cathedral

Leicester Cathedral is delighted to announce the appointment of Rosie Vinter to the post of Assistant Director of Music and Head of Music Outreach. Rosie is currently Organ Scholar at Lichfield Cathedral and Graduate Music Assistant at Lichfield Cathedral School. She is an Associate of the Royal College of Organists and has degrees from Chichester University and the London College of Music.

Christopher Ouvry-Johns, Director of Music at Leicester Cathedral, said: “Rosie’s skill-set and experience are as close a match for this post as we could have hoped to find. She is a highly proficient organist, conductor and singer and, most importantly, has an instinctive understanding of education and an ability to establish a rapport with young singers, which will be invaluable both in the classrooms of our DioSing! schools and in her work with the choristers and young songmen at Leicester Cathedral. I look forward very much to welcoming her to the department after the summer holidays.”

Emma Davies, Acting Canon Precentor of Leicester Cathedral , said: “We’re absolutely delighted that Rosie will be joining our music department here at Leicester Cathedral. The considerable skills, talent and experience that she brings will be enormously valuable to our music team and will enable us to build on and develop the good musical work that we have undertaken here. We very much look forward to welcoming Rosie in September.”

Speaking about her appointment, Rosie said: “I am delighted to be joining Leicester Cathedral as Assistant Director of Music and Head of Music Outreach, and cannot wait to begin working with the Cathedral music department and local schools in September. Prior to this appointment, I studied Theology and Music at Chichester University, and Music Performance at the London College of Music. I have since been teaching music at Abbots Bromley School and Lichfield Cathedral School, and have held posts as organ scholar at Chelmsford Cathedral, Temple Church and Lichfield Cathedral.”
