YOU’VE NEVER HEARD THE CHRISTIE ORGAN PLAYED LIKE THIS….
Experience the astonishing virtuoso organist David Gray playing exhilarating piano works and spellbinding popular tunes on piano and Brisbane’s magnificent cinema pipe organ.
On this 1934-vintage cinema pipe organ, affectionately known as ‘The Christie’, Gray conjures up a symphony of sound in a program of unexpected delights including light classics and popular music from the movies and Broadway. An award-winning musician, Gray will dazzle audiences with his orchestral masterpieces specially arranged for the cinema organ.
David Gray returns to Brisbane after his spellbinding 2016 Australian tour, for a concert of unexpected delights where heart-warming music meets astonishing keyboard skills as part of the Queensland Music Festival.
This amazing young man is only 26 and scooped the pool in his final 2015 graduation recital from the London Royal College of Music, majoring in piano performance. In the same year he was awarded the prestigious American Theatre Organ Society “Organist of the Year” award recognising his contribution to this genre. This mesmerising music which once oozed from ornate cinema doors, now allows a glimpse back through time, into the jazzy, carefree nights of the golden age of cinema.
Complimentary drinks (wine and fruit punch) will be served from 1.15pm in the foyer along with a scrumptious afternoon (gold coin donation appreciated) during intermission.
