Paul Luggya, a former organ scholar at UK’s Lichfield Cathedral, last Sunday gave a thrilling organ recital at St Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe. Luggya received a standing ovation in recognition of his undisputed competence.

He played Organ-writing styles, which included pieces with solo sounds. He performed pieces by Bach, Henry Purcell, Hebert Howells, Mandelssohn, Cesar Franck, Bob Chilcott, and Leon Boellmann.

Throughout the concert, Luggya demonstrated his good control over the Organ. Kampala Music School’s (KMS)’s Samuel Matovu said, “Luggya has demonstrated capabilities of the Organ as a solo and also as an orchestral instrument.” Luggya first learnt music as a chorister at Namirembe Cathedral. He has been learning Piano with Fiona Carr since 1998.

In 2000, Luggya won the Price Waterhouse Coopers Piano Music competition in Nairobi. He got a scholarship to study Organ in the UK under Michael Rhodes FRCO and Ian Tracey, Organist at Liverpool Cathedral.

He continued studies with Andrew Fletcher in Birmingham. Between 2002-2003, he was an Organ scholar at Lichfield Cathedral. He returned to Uganda in July 2004.
Currently he works for the Dip. ABRSM and teaches at KMS.
