HUW LLEWELYN MORGAN was born in Newport, South Wales, in 1975. He read music at St Edmund Hall (University of Oxford) where he was organ scholar; following a career in the financial services, Huw graduated in 2007 from the Royal Academy of Music, winning the Olwen Doreen Leyshorn prize, after studying choral conducting.

Huw is currently director of the Redland Green Choir and the Clifton Singers in Bristol, and of Weston Choral Society; previous posts include the Merbecke Choir of Southwark Cathedral and organist of St Laurence Church, Catford, in south London.

Huw is an advocate for contemporary and experimental music: in Bristol and beyond, he seeks to bring both new repertoire and audiences to the organ. He also is a founder member of Automatronic, a collective that explores, creates and promotes new music for organ with electronics.

Huw′s compositions have been performed at festivals and venues across the UK, Europe and North America. Recent commissions have included a joint project for a large-scale choral work for Ipswich Choral Society and Dance East, and a piece for two organs with electronics for the organ department of Arizona State University.

Huw is also a keen photographer and above all enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
