Bridget Cunningham

Harpsichordist, Organist, Conductor


Studying at Trinity [Laban] the very first year it opened its doors in Greenwich was exciting - especially playing for the opening ceremony at the Royal Naval Chapel. Meeting wonderful musicians including Philip Thorby, John Henry and Linda Hirst and working on glorious projects with many musicians and singers was a highlight.
