Douglas Lawrence

After completing a Masters Degree in performance at Melbourne University Douglas Lawrence spent two years with Anton Heiller in the Concert Class at the Vienna Academy and during that time began a concert career which has since taken him to Europe, the UK, North America, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines and New Zealand. His first highly important concert was in 1972 on the world’s oldest playable organ in Sion Switzerland. That instrument was built about 1420. Douglas has given concerts there on seven subsequent occasions. He has performed in over 2,000 concerts as organist, harpsichordist or conductor, given premieres of over 70 works and has released nearly 30 recordings, including a CD of Barber's Choral Music on Naxos. (8.559053)

The international press has given the highest praise to Lawrence for his work with The Choir of Ormond College which he founded in 1982. The choir has toured abroad every two years since 1985.

In Melbourne Douglas Lawrence is Master of the Chapel Music at Ormond College, the University of Melbourne and Director of Music to the Scots Church. He founded and directs the Australian Baroque Ensemble. He teaches organ for the Faculty of Music at the University of Melbourne and the Australian Catholic University. He is Artistic Director of The Southern Grampians Promenade of Sacred music. In 1992 he was awarded an Order of Australia for services to music.
