Bill Schumacher & Debbie Fitzsummons


Bill and Debbie are the driving force behind TOSA Gold Coast. Together they organize and play regular concerts there, with Debbie as President and Bill as Secretary & Patron. Bill is the proud owner of a George Wright GW-319 Allen Theatre Organ as well as a Yamaha Grand Piano.  Bill and Debbie are also supporters of TOSA QLD, and perform in concert on their Christie Cinema Pipe Organ.


Bill Schumacher was one of the first members of TOSA NSW and has performed interstate concerts in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.  During several visits to the USA, Bill played a recital for the Puget Sound Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society, and has been guest artist at the Pizza and Pipes Restaurant in Seattle.  Bill considers himself fortunate to have visited and played some major US theatre pipe organ installations including the Seattle Paramount and Portland Paramount's San Gabriel Civic Auditorium, the Kern Residence, Detroit Fox and Portland and Denver's Organ Grinder Restaurants.


Debbie Fitzsummons has a wealth of experience in all areas of entertainment.  Australian champion organist at the age of 15, she was a concert organist & released a solo album at age 19. At 14yrs of age was the youngest organist to then be invited to play The Christie cinema organ in Brisbane. Debbie’s musical career has been wide and varied, and she has been fortunate to be Musical Director and play for many great Australian and International performers such as The Four Kinsmen (including their USA and Las Vegas tours), Wickety Wak, Simon Gallaher, Debra Byrne, Julie Anthony, Max Bygraves, Phyllis Diller, Joe Longthorne, Judy Stone, Johnny Tillotson, Rolf Harris, Kerri-Ann Kennerley & Gina Jefferies to name a few.


Together, Bill and Debbie have performed Theatre Pipe Organ and Piano concerts in Sydney, Perth & Brisbane as well as the Gold Coast.
