Organist and Director of Music of the iconic Our Lady of Victories Basilica (Camberwell, Melbourne) Australia, organist Christopher Trikilis has established himself as one of this country’s leading exponents of the instrument. Commencing piano lessons at a young age, he completed music studies at the University of Melbourne studying with John Mallinson (organ) and Mark McGee (piano) while also being Organ Scholar at St Patrick’s Cathedral Melbourne. Maintaining an active performance schedule both as soloist and accompanist, Christopher has performed extensively across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America.

He is a Director of the Organ Historical Trust of Australia, a former Vice-President of the Society of Organists Victoria, and was acting editor of nationwide ‘Organ Australia’ magazine in 2011. Christopher is also responsible for the installation of pipe organs, and conservation projects in recent years in a number of Melbourne churches. His playing has featured on the national broadcasters of Australia (ABC) and Croatia (HRT), alongside CD and DVD recordings including the CD “Diapason” on the Move Records label. For nearly a decade, Christopher was Organist and Director of Music at one of Australia’s busiest parish churches, St Patrick’s in Mentone (with its heritage-listed 1862 Nicholson organ). He is also Music Tutor to Corpus Christi Seminary in Carlton, and on staff at St Kevin’s College in Toorak.
