Westminster Concert Organ Series presents Rachel Mahon
Rachel Mahon is the Assistant Organist at Chester Cathedral, and a performing professional musician. Before taking up her post at Chester, Mahon was the first female organ scholar of St Paul’s Cathedral in London, England, assuming the post in September 2014. Mahon was raised in Toronto, Ontario, where her parents were both choral directors.
Mahon has held organ posts at St. James Cathedral, Trinity College, and Timothy Eaton Memorial Church in Toronto and at Truro Cathedral in Cornwall, England. She is one of the Canadian organ duo Organized Crime, which “attempts to reinvigorate the instrument by arranging popular music for the organ, playing scores to James Bond and Star Wars wearing five-inch stiletto heels and blue sequined spandex.”
