Guildford Cathedral

Asher Oliver arrived in Guildford in April 2023, following nearly two years as Assistant Organist at York Minster. Originally hailing from the North-West, his musical education began as a chorister at Manchester Cathedral alongside a place at Chetham’s School of Music, where he later studied the organ with Christopher Stokes. 

After a gap year as organ scholar at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, Asher read Music at Trinity College, Cambridge. Working closely with the college choir there, he took part in tours across Europe and North America, and features as an accompanist on CDs of choral music by Finzi and Vaughan Williams. Upon leaving Cambridge, Asher moved to London, to take up the organ scholarship at St Paul’s Cathedral.
