Bradley Burgess

pianist & organist

"The audience was enraptured..."



Praised for his “virtuoso piano playing” and his ability to leave audiences “spellbound” (ClassicSA), Bradley Burgess is one of today’s few concert artists who can move seamlessly between the piano bench and organ console, and enjoys a multifaceted career as concert pianist, concert organist, and church musician.

Bradley has appeared in recital in many major venues of his home country of South Africa, as well as in the UK, Finland, and across the United States. Upcoming highlights of the 2016–2017 season include performances at Church of the Transfiguration (New York, NY), Third Baptist Church (St. Louis, MO), St. Peter’s Church (Long Island, NY), Rutgers University (Camden, NJ), Woolsey Hall (New Haven, CT), and King’s Chapel (Boston, MA).

Bradley holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City and the University of Cape Town. He has also been the recipient of several awards and prizes, including First Prize at the Fine Music Radio / Pick ‘n Pay 101.3 Music Awards, the Oppenheimer Memorial Trust Bursary, and a generous grant from the National Arts Council of South Africa. He is currently studying organ under Martin Jean at Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music and School of Music, where he was awarded the Julie B. Sherman Prize for excellence in organ playing last year. He also serves as Minister of Music at Middlebury Congregational Church, and as Organ Scholar at Yale Divinity School’s Marquand Chapel.
