TOSAQ presents Mathew Loeser.
You’re invited to stroll down memory lane and rediscover the magic of days gone by, during an afternoon of cabaret.
Mathew’s programme will feature the music of Noel Coward, Cole Porter, Disney, Stage & Screen Classics, the Great American Songbook and other favourites! This programme will delight music lovers of all ages.
Armed with a passion for nostalgia and a flamboyant personality, Mathew breathes new life into the songs of yesteryear. His love of cabaret is evident, as he creates an intimate connection with his audiences.
Experience the charm, magic and sublime power when Mathew performs on Brisbane’s magnificent Christie Cinema Pipe Organ and Grand Piano.
It all started with the gift of a toy keyboard from Mathew’s Grandmother. Born in Victor Harbor, South Australia, Mathew commenced studies on both electronic and theatre organs at age 9. Making his first public concert appearance at age 10, he proceeded to develop his talents with local teachers, winning numerous awards and scholarships along the way. In 2001 Mathew was awarded the title of Junior World Champion Theatre Organist by the American Theatre Organ Society, resulting in an invitation to Indianapolis USA to perform at the National Convention.
His return to Australia marked a diverse change in his career, turning his talents to singing self-accompanied at the piano. Since 2003, Mathew has travelled and performed internationally, a frequently invited concert performer at conventions, society and gala events, making cabaret the major focus of his career. In 2013, Mathew was honoured to spend 3 months performing on board 2 of P&O’s Cruise liners in the UK and as a special surprise, Mathew’s CD “Timeless” was featured on “The Russell Davies Song Show” on BBC’s Radio 2 with his cover of Peter Allen’s “Everything Old Is New Again” bringing in the New Year.
Mathew is consistently sought after for concerts, gala events, private soirees and guest appearances. Dedicated to keeping the work of history’s greatest songwriters alive, he continuously searches for rare and well-known musical gems, which he delights in sharing with audiences. To touch the lives of others with music is a gift for which he is eternally grateful and his aspirations are to continue doing what he enjoys most of all … making people smile.
Soak up the atmosphere with a complimentary glass of wine on arrival, comfortable cabaret style seating with projection of the performance on screens from multiple cameras and afternoon tea at interval.

The ‘retro’ experience of the TOSAQ Christie organ rising out of the floor, just as it did in the luxurious Granada Theatre in the 1930’s, is just one of the reasons that is attracting music lovers to TOSAQ concerts.
