Visit Henry Fairs' website
Henry Fairs is Head of Organ Studies at Birmingham Conservatoire and organist to the University of Birmingham. Since winning first prize at the Odense International Organ Competition, his concert career has taken him to the major European centres of organ music and to America, performing solo recitals and concertos on both historic and modern instruments.
Born in Hereford in 1976, he received his earliest musical training as a chorister at Leominster Priory. After studies with David Saint, graduating with First Class Honours from Birmingham Conservatoire and gaining the Fellowship diploma of the Royal College of Organists with the Turpin and Durrant Prize, a bursary from the Countess of Munster Trust enabled study with Susan Landale in France where in 1999 he won the Premier Prix d’Exellence à l’unanimité du jury. He then undertook further studies in Germany with Thierry Mechler at the Hochschule für Musik, Köln and in England with David Sanger.
Henry Fairs is regularly invited to give guest lectures and masterclasses: in 2011/12 as a guest tutor and jury member at the Carl Nielsen International Festival and Competition, Denmark, Edinburgh Organ Academy, London Organ Day and the Royal Norwegian Academy, Oslo. Henry enjoys playing and teaching a broad, eclectic repertoire with a strong focus on historically informed practice and techniques and their relevance and application today.
