Michael Graham

Director of Chapel Music

Since 2012 Michael Graham has established himself as a dynamic musician based in the South West, forging his career as a singer, teacher, conductor and keyboard artist.

Brought up and educated in the city of Liverpool, Michael was awarded an organ scholarship at his home church of St Bartholomew's, Rainhill. In 2007 he attended the Junior Royal Northern College of Music, studying voice with the late Jeff Lawton, and developed his interest in conducting and accompaniment at this time. Michael subsequently went on to hold positions at cathedrals across the UK including Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, St David's Cathedral and Exeter Cathedral.

At the age of 22, Michael was appointed Organist and Director of Chapel Music of the University of Exeter. Under his direction, the University Chapel Choir has gained a distinguished reputation, and has undertaken an impressive portfolio of broadcasts, concerts and international tours. The Choir is now regarded as one of the premier young ensembles in the South West of England.

For nine years Michael was the Musical Director of the Budleigh Salterton Male Voice Choir. He currently directs the University of Exeter Choral Society, the West Devon Chorale and the University of Exeter Alumni Choir, EXODUS. Michael is also responsible for the chorister programme at Blundell's School and is a vocal tutor for the choristers at Exeter Cathedral School.

As a singer, Michael was a member of Exeter Cathedral choir for ten years and now pursues his freelance career as a tenor soloist. Michael has appeared on numerous broadcasts and recordings and undertakes concerts nationally both as a solo recitalist and in oratorio performances.

Michael is always happy to hear from prospective choral scholars looking to study at Exeter. He is contactable on
