Hamish Wagstaff Organist

Recognised as one of Australia's finest young organists, Hamish Wagstaff is fast establishing a reputation for artistic excellence.

 

Commencing his organ studies with Robert Wagner as a student of Sydney Grammar School, he currently studies with Philip Swanton at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where he holds the Richard and Doreen Wilson Organ Scholarship. Hamish serves on the music staff at Christ Church St Laurence, where he is responsible for the accompaniment of the church's renowned choir, and works closely with Sam Allchurch.

 

He previously held positions as Organ Scholar then subsequently acting Director of Music at St John's Dee Why. Hamish was selected to perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of the 2017 HSC Encore showcase, and maintains an active schedule as a recitalist.

 

Upcoming engagements include a recital tour of the UK in January 2020, and appearances at the Bowral Autumn Music Festival as both a soloist and accompanist.
