He recently graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with first-class honours in Music Performance, where he studied the organ with Henry Fairs, and choral conducting with Paul Spicer.
Callum has performed extensively as a soloist in the UK. He won first-prize at the IAO/RCO Organ Playing Competition (2018) in Peterborough, and Dame Gillian Weir Messiaen Competition (2018) in Birmingham, and was twice a finalist in the Northern Ireland International Organ Competition. Recital venues have included cathedrals in Birmingham (Anglican and RC), Liverpool (RC), Wells, Westminster and Winchester; chapels in Oxford and Cambridge; as well as parts of music festivals in St Davids (Wales), Hexham, St Albans (International Organ Festival), and at the annual Bloomsbury Organ Day (2019). Callum's debut CD Klangredenhas recently been released on the Regent label, featuring the Garnier organ at the University of Birmingham, and the Walker organ at St Chad's Cathedral, Birmingham, performing Lutheran chorale-based repertoire.
