Stuart Corrie has always been surrounded by a love of music and an encouragement to make the most of any opportunity, eventually settling on learning to play the organ. As a teenager, he was a recital prize winner at the Oundle International Organ Festival and was a finalist in the National Young Organist of the Year competition, held at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Stuart went on to read music at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, the University of London where he was appointed organ scholar, studying with Prof Lionel Pike, Roger Judd, and Jeremy Filsell. He also held the post of organist at Windsor Parish Church.
His accomplishments garnered him a scholarship to study at Tulane University in New Orleans in the US, where he also sang in the Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral Choir and was honored to perform in their recital series. Stuart went on to hold positions at Chelmsford Cathedral, Felsted School, and for many years was assistant Director of Music and Housemaster at Rossall School. In 2017 he relocated to the Isle of Man when he was appointed the Deputy Head (Pastoral) at King William’s College. He is also an Associate Organist at Cathedral Isle of Man.
He is much in demand as a recitalist and accompanist and has performed in France, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Malta, Portugal, USA, and Bermuda, in addition to his UK commitments.
Brother Corrie was initiated by the Omicron Beta Chapter in 2014.
