Alison spent her early twenties as a concert pianist but finally decided on a career at the organ. She studied with Peter Hurford, and is now in great demand as a recitalist, both in the UK and abroad. Recent and forthcoming engagements in the UK include recitals at St. Paul's Cathedral and at Sheffield, Bristol, Portsmouth and Truro Cathedrals, at Cheltenham Town Hall and at various City of London churches. During 1998 she performed in Germany, Denmark and Sweden, and plans to tour Scandinavia again during 1999. She has appeared many times on television in the UK: on the most recent occasions she was featured on BBC2's Esther programme and on Channel 5's Espresso. Earlier this year she was also invited to join Radio 4's Ad Lib discussion programme with Robert Robinson

In addition to her concert work, Alison is frequently asked to give talks and masterclasses, and to adjudicate. This year she adjudicated organ and choral classes at the Chelmsford Competitive Festival. Alison acts as a tutor for the RSCM Organist Training Scheme in the Chelmsford Diocese, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.
