Meet Paul Rosoman

We at South Island Organ Co are very lucky to have a helping hand from Paul when we work on different projects in Wellington or when we come to the capital city on one of our tuning & maintenance rounds.

International Concert Organist, Paul Rosoman was born and educated in New Zealand, and is currently Director of Music at both St Luke’s Church, and Old St Paul’s in Wellington.

He tours every summer in Europe performing in major concert venues and festivals, and also plays regularly in New Zealand and Australia. This year’s concert tours will take him to Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands, and he was an artist as part of the 2018 New Zealand Festival chamber music series.

His CDs include “Great Organ”, recorded at St Peter’s on Willis in Wellington on the 1886 William Hill organ that we have restored after the fire and now look after, and “Ciacona!”, the first recording of the SIOC’s first new tracker action organ in Old St Paul’s. Performances by Paul are regularly heard on Radio New Zealand.
