Home 9 Composers 9 Michael Murray

Since 1980, Michael Murray (b. 1960) has had a busy career as organist and choir director in the city of Vancouver. Apart from a brief five years in Toronto from 1984 to 1989 when he received his Diploma in Organ Performance, he has been on the West coast working as a professional musician. Currently, Michael is Director of Music at St. Philip’s Anglican Church, Director of the Abendmusik Chamber Choir and is the Organ Instructor at the U.B.C. School of Music. In 1992 he decided that the city could do with another chamber choir so he founded the vocal ensemble musica intima.
Recent CDs include ‘Obbligato Sonatas by J.S.Bach’ with flutist Mark Takeshi McGregor, and Phoenix Chamber Choir’s  ‘Mid-Winter Songs’ both recorded at St. Philip’s on the three manual Casavant organ.
