Laurence studied as a Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music, where he was awarded the Harold Darke Memorial Prize for Organ. From 2015-17 he held the Dr John Birch Organ Scholarship at All Saints Margaret Street. Before this he studied the organ with Roger Sayer at Rochester Cathedral, where he had been a Cathedral Chorister. He has given organ recitals at venues including St Paul’s Cathedral, and as a piano soloist he has performed works such as Beethoven’s third piano concerto and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with orchestra. His prizes include the Stephen Corry Award in the Northern Ireland International Organ Competition and Woodard Musician of the Year.
