Find out what life is really like at Durham University


Matthew McCullough

I read music at Durham University on a Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship, with a Choral Scholarship at Durham Cathedral and graduated in July 2019 with First Class Honours. I’m now studying for a Masters in Musicology while I also sing as a Lay Clerk at Newcastle Cathedral, work as a freelance conductor, accompanist and singer. I currently hold an offer to undertake a PhD researching the effect of personal psychiatric trauma on artistic creativity and music’s role as a secular theological sanctuary from post-traumatic stress, through an examination of the mind and music of Gerald Finzi.
