UK Cathedral Music Trust appoints Alexander Armstrong as Ambassador

The presenter, comedian and actor will promote the Trust, which supports the UK's cultural heritage and nurtures the next generation of cathedral musicians

As a former chorister at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh, the Trust‘s new Ambassador has a strong background in cathedral music. Later singing as a choral scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge, and still performing and recording as a bass-baritone, Armstrong currently presents Classic FM’s flagship mid-morning radio programme as well as the popular television quiz show ‘Pointless’ on BBC1.

Peter Allwood, Chair of the Cathedral Music Trust, said, ‘We are thrilled to welcome Alexander as our Ambassador and look forward to working with him. Cathedral music is a national treasure that should be celebrated with pride by us all. Alexander’s infectious enthusiasm for cathedral music, and his extensive experience as a singer, make him a wonderful advocate for our cause.’
