Catherine began her career as Organ Scholar at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, and later Assistant Organist of Christ Church Cathedral.

Her subsequent career as recitalist and recording artist has taken her to many international venues; as a teacher, she has been involved with three major London Music conservatoires, and with St. Giles International Organ School.

She has given masterclasses throughout the UK and abroad, and is a frequent examiner and adjudicator for colleges and festivals.

As fundraiser, and organ consultant, she has helped create three other London organs – The Rieger at St. Marylebone shared with the Royal Academy of Music; the Klais at St. Lawrence Jewry; and the William Drake in the new Greenwich home of Trinity College of Music. In 1994, Catherine established the London Organ Concerts Guide.

Under Catherine’s direction, part of the flourishing Tuesday lunchtime recital series at St. Lawrence Jewry is devoted to providing a platform for young artists at the organ, whether sixth-formers, young British graduands, or international post-graduates.

She is Director of the John Hill memorial recitals, Chairman of the Sam Baker Trust, Trustee of the Nicholas Danby Trust for young organists and Past President of the Incorporated Association of Organists.
