W Bro. Dr Simon Geoffrey Lindley, PJGD
Provincial Grand Organist
Before moving to Yorkshire thirty-five years ago, Simon was organist to several famous London Churches [notably St Anne & St Agnes and St Olave, Hart Street, in the City]. Simon was also Organ Tutor at the Royal School of Church Music's College of St Nicolas, then at Addington Palace, Croydon and held posts at Westminster and St Albans Cathedrals and as Director of Music to St Alban's School.
Simon was Senior Lecturer in Music at Leeds Polytechnic from 1976 to 1987. In 1988, he was appointed to the new post of Senior Assistant Music Officer for Leeds City Council's [then] Learning and Leisure Department, working on a kaleidoscopic diversity of productions in the office of the award-winning Leeds International Concert Season – notably weekly Town Hall Lunchtime Recitals, programmes for the Saturday symphony and choral concerts and as Artistic Advisor to the Leeds Summer Heritage Festivals from 1989.
