Steven McIntyre holds a BMus with first class honours from the University of Glasgow, and is a Fellow of both Trinity College London and the Royal College of Organists. He has been recipient of a Sir Thomas Beecham Trust scholarship; the Limpus, Shinn and Durrant prize (for FRCO); and the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.
As an undergraduate, Steven was awarded the Flentrop Scholarship from the Royal Philharmonic Society, enabling him to study on the historic organs of Alkmaar and Haarlem with Pieter van Dijk and Jos van der Kooy. More recently, he was one of three inaugural Tunnock Scholars from Scotland’s Churches Trust to study on extant Parisian organs of historical importance.
Solo recitals have taken place across the UK and abroad, and as accompanist, Steven can regularly be heard on radio and television. He has recorded for Regent (Paisley Abbey Choir) and with Linn (Cappella Nova) on a disc of new music by Sir James MacMillan. Reviews hail his “sparkling performance” (Gramophone) and that “[his] superb technique spoke volumes” (Dundee Courier).
Passionate about outreach and education, Steven has taught on the faculty of St Andrews Organ Week; has been a consultant to the Royal School of Church Music (Scotland) and RCO:SCOTS (Scottish Church Organist’s Training Scheme); and is a contributor to the Sowne of Organe project, which seeks to document and record historically significant organs in Scotland.
