Anthony Gowing is currently Assistant Director of Music at Sheffield Cathedral, and Director of the Cathedral’s Schola Cantorum. After a spell at The Royal Academy of Music in London, Anthony has worked extensively as an organist, pianist and singer. His organ teachers were Colin Walsh, John Keys and Nicholas Danby.
