Director of Music and Organist of The Temple Church, London, will be joining us for his only Sydney Organ Concert while in Australia.
Roger Sayer began his musical career as a chorister in Porsmouth and then studied at the Royal College of Music under Nicholas Danby. Between 1980 and 1984 he was an organ student at St Paul's Cathedral, London, and was appointed organist of Woodford Parish Church in 1981. In 1989 he was appointed Assistant Organist at Rochester Cathedral and was promoted to Organist and Director of Music in 1994. He was appointed Organist & Director of Music at the Temple Church in 2013.
Roger Sayer's most well known recording to date is as organist on Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for Christopher Nolan's 2014 film 'Interstellar'. Roger collaborated directly with Zimmer and Nolan as elements of the score were crafted around possibilities offered by the organ at Temple Church.
Admission is free and refreshments (and a chance to meet Roger) will be available at the conclusion of the concert.
