The Lloyd Cast Organ Fellow
The Lloyd E. Cast Fellowship was established in 2008 by The Friends of the Choir in memory of The Cathedral of All Saints long-term Organist and Choir Master. The design and intent of the full time in-residence Fellowship is to provide post-graduate study and practical experience to an emerging organ scholar. The Lloyd Cast Fellow provides musical services to The Cathedral of All Saints throughout the year, as well as to assist with The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys during the academic term.
Inquiries about the Lloyd E. Cast Organ Fellowship can be made to the Music Director.
