Ian Ball MA (Oxon), FRCO, Barrister-at-Law.


Ian Ball divides his time between law and music. Called to the Bar in 2006, Ian is an in-house employment lawyer for an international business consultancy. He continues to pursue a busy schedule as soloist and conductor and has been Director of Music of Gloucester's city churches since 2002.


Before training as a mediator led him to study law at the University of the West of England, Ian enjoyed a successful career as a teacher, conductor and organist, which included posts at Manchester, Bristol, Clifton and Gloucester Cathedrals. Ian won scholarships to Oxford University and the Royal Northern College of Music, holds degrees in music and law, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists. His organ teachers have included David Sanger, Peter Hurford, Gordon Stewart and Naji Hakim. As a soloist, Ian has toured throughout Europe and the USA, broadcast on television and radio, and has made several CD recordings.


Ian has now moved to Worcester, and as he no longer lives in our district he decided to resign his membership of the GOA and he has joined the Worcester Organists’ Association.
