Bernies Music Land is thrilled to welcome back this world class theatre organist for a special day of music celebration!

Tony Fenelon is one of the world's most sought-after theatre organists. His incredible talent and flair span genres from classical and romantic music through to silver screen and pop. Tony is a wonderful part of the Bernies Music Land family and we are honored to have him perform on our stage. One of his favourite performance features is to prepare a full orchestral backing of a Piano Concerto on the Atelier organ, then play this recording and perform the piano part live on the Schimmel Konzert Grand Piano. This breathtaking feat of musicality sees him prepare more than 40 registration changes and is an incredible musical feat. Come and hear him perform a new piano concerto and more... 

Here's more about the incredible Tony Fenelon:

It was inevitable from an early age that music would play a significantly major role in Tony Fenelon's life. As a child, he showed astounding talent as a pianist, and, in later years, studied with Roy Shepherd at the Conservatorium of Music in Melbourne.
Tony's insatiable interest in lighter music and a love of the majestic sound of the theatre pipe organ led to his appointment in 1965 as the resident organist at Melbourne's then prestigious Regent Theatre.

An internationally acclaimed artist, Tony provides a sophisticated balance between popular tunes, light classics along with music from the silver screen, stage, jazz and the great standards.
As the piano has always been his first love, Tony continues to revisit his extensive repertoire of classical piano, as there has been an increasing demand for his performances as a pianist. His favourite composer is Rachmaninoff, however his programs include works by Franz Liszt, Brahms, Debussy, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Granados, Greig and Mendelssohn.

Tony was voted "Organist of the Year 2002" by the American Theatre Organ Society, and in 2003, was awarded the distinction of the Medal of the Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday Honours for his service to music.

In 2014, Tony was inducted into the prestigious American Theatre Organ Society's "Hall of Fame" recognising his contribution to this genre.

A man with an insatiable appetite for music, Tony's dedication and energy are the drive behind his constant quest for new ideas and musical horizons.

This event is held on the Schimmel center stage at Bernies Music Land,
