On 28 February 2016 Michael Bell will step down as Director of Music at St Matthew-in-the-City. Michael has worked in this position for 12 years, alongside his position as a teacher at King’s School, Auckland. Michael Bell is well known as a concert organist and as a composer.

Vicar Helen Jacobi comments “We were very sad when Michael announced his departure, but understand there comes a time to move on. The congregation will miss Michael’s extraordinary talent as a composer and improviser. On many Sundays Michael will conclude the service with an improvisation based on a line or a tune from the service or something that fits the theme. His creative abilities are unique.”

There will be two opportunities to farewell Michael.
