Chris began learning the electronic organ at the age of eight. His passion for theatre pipe organ was not fully realised until meeting and hearing legendary British organist Douglas Reeve on his only visit to Australia in March 1989. June 1993, Chris was acclaimed as winner of both the Senior Section and Overall Winner of the American Theatre Organ Society’s Young Theatre Organist competition. That same year, Chris performed at the Adelaide Regent Theatre to celebrate its 65th birthday. This association with the Regent continued as he performed at the closing show some ten years later. Chris is in regular demand for concerts around Australia and overseas, including New Zealand, United Kingdom and the USA. In mid 1999 he was featured in the American Theatre Organ Society’s National Convention held in London, performing on the famous Buddy Cole Wurlitzer. Back home in Adelaide Chris is a popular artist at the prestigious Adelaide Town Hall and Festival Theatre pipe organs, performing for the Lord Mayors Christmas Concerts and Morning Melodies series. Chris is also a featured organist at the Capri Theatre. Rosanne’s performance career spans over 20 years and has taken her all around Australia and overseas. She has enjoyed exploring her natural versatility on the operatic, musical theatre, cabaret and contemporary stage. Her professional theatrical debut was in the Australian cast of The Phantom of the Opera with which she toured Australia and New Zealand. Most recently, she played the role of Miriam in the World Premier of new Australian musical, “The Front” at the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Festival and in 2013 she toured Australia with Amity Dry’s musical, Mother Wife and the Complicated Life in the role of Lily. Rosanne has made appearances both nationally and internationally as a concert artist. Highlights have included Off the Air with ABC ClassicFM presenter, Guy Noble and performing Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate with the Austral Sinfonietta in London.
