St Hugh’s announces The Catherine Ennis Organ Scholars for 2024

In 2021 St Hugh’s launched an appeal to endow three organ scholarships at the College in honour of the late Catherine Ennis (Music, 1973), who was one of the UK’s leading organists. Now fully endowed, these scholarships offer fantastic musical opportunities for promising young organists amongst our student body. Congratulations to this year’s scholars who we hope you will have the opportunity to hear in action soon. Details of the scholars are below.

 

Senior Scholar: James Hansen said: ‘I am very grateful for the opportunities I have had
as a result of my organ scholarship. I have very much enjoyed developing my organ playing
and conducting and being involved in the musical life of the College. I am looking forward to
continuing my development during the rest of my time at St Hugh’s.’

 

Junior Scholar: Alex Large said:I feel very honoured to be picked for this scholarship and am looking forward to all the work I will be able to do. I am primarily a piano player but
when I was much younger I did play the organ for a short while and loved it.

Recently, I haven’t been able to play due to the costs of finding an organ and hiring one out,
so I feel very privileged to have this opportunity and I am very thankful.”

You can watch Alex playing one of his favourite gospels on the piano at his local church here.
