Robert Court is Cardiff University Organist and an Associate Lecturer at the University; in addition, he pursues a busy freelance career as an organist and harpsichordist.
He plays frequently with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and he has performed
with most of this country's leading orchestras. Performing engagements take him
all over Britain and he has also played in France, Austria, the Czech Republic,
Norway and the USA (spending a week as artist in residence at Kansas State
University and subsequently giving recitals in New York). He appears frequently
on TV (most recently in the 2013 BBC Proms series) and radio and has recorded
CDs as organist, accompanist and choral conductor.
In 1988 Robert co-founded Cardiff Organ Events - an organization dedicated to promoting the organ through recitals by celebrity recitalists and other related activities. Cardiff Organ Events, which is unique in this country, is now responsible for organizing most of the organ recitals that take place in South Wales (including those at St. David's Hall, Cardiff and the National Museum of Wales) and has been a major force in securing the restoration of local historically valuable instruments.
Robert is Organist at St. Augustine's Church, Penarth and until 2010 was music director of Cantemus Chamber Choir Wales. In 2003 he was honoured with the Archbishop of Wales' Award for Services to Church Music.
