Chris CartnerChris Cartner – Piano

Chris Cartner was still a teenager when he was appointed Organ Scholar at Rochester Cathedral in the UK. He went on to graduate in classical piano performance at Trinity College of Music in London, before training under the expert guidance of concert pianist Professor Matthijs Verschoor at the Amsterdam Conservatoire.

After a period as repetiteur with British Youth Opera, Chris became a much sought after musician on the London circuit, embarking on a huge array of different musical projects. Since then he has worked as a solo pianist, accompanist, chamber musician and musical director in various parts of the world, and completed several hundred recital programmes in London and Amsterdam.

Since coming to Australia early in 2008, Chris has been increasingly involved in the arts industry in Sydney, working with most of the nation’s major arts organisations, including Opera Australia, Sydney Philharmonia and Sydney Chamber Choir amongst others, and has a busy diary of concert engagements. He recently completed a two-year tenure as Assistant Chorus Master and Principal Pianist at Sydney Philharmonia.
