Simon Ellis is a native of Sydney, and has a background in
Philosophy, English, Law and Theology.

After initial piano studies from the age of 6, he studied organ
with Robert Broughall and then with the late Eric Smith. He served
as Assistant Organist to Eric at Wesley Central Mission for 6 years,
and was regularly heard playing the Christie theatre organ in the
Lyceum Theatre, playing for both church services, and before and
after movies.


Simon was Organist/ Choirmaster at Northmead Uniting Church
for 9 years until the early 1980’s, and concurrently Director of
Music at a large reception venue, Fairfield House, at Windsor. He
also served several years as Associate Music Director for the
Sydney Touring Theatre Company, and was Director of the highly
successful Blue Mountains Consort for 6 years until 1998.
Simon has performed in both theatre and classical organ venues
in many parts of Australia, America, Britain, and Europe. He has
accompanied many singers, both in Australia and overseas, and
also studied singing with the late Florence Taylor. He was for many
years affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music, and is
currently in his 15th year as Senior Staff Organist for a large
Sydney church.


Glenn Amer is featured as a Headline Entertainer on the
Regent, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Silversea, Celebrity, Crystal,
Norwegian, Orient, Princess, Holland America, NHK, Saga, Oceania
and Seabourn cruise lines. Touring with these companies has taken
him all over the world and, extensively, throughout Australia. His
Liberace style of piano playing has proved extremely popular with
audiences who are also impressed with his Robert Goulet/Mario
Lanza style singing.


Encompassed in Glenn’s repertoire is a wide-ranging variety of
styles. Whether playing a major Bach organ work or a popular
song by Burt Bacharach, he is equally at home!


2015 was filled with international and Australian tours, as well as
new recordings which were released early 2016.


When he’s in Sydney, he can be heard playing the magnificent
three manual pipe organ at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Cremorne,
(where Glenn is the Director of Music), every Sunday at 9am!
2016 began with a flying start, Glenn undertook a 3 month world
tour, and the remainder of the year was busy with concert
appearances and Australian tours.
