We have a special treat starting at 07:30 AM on the morning of Monday, March 11th as you enter the Town Hall Auditorium. Martin Setchell is an organist, composer, teacher and Christchurch Town Hall organ curator. Born and educated in Blackpool, England, Martin Setchell earned an honours degree in French and music from the University of Exeter. He went on to receive a Fellowship of Royal College of Organists, London. From there he went on to study classical organ technique with the then organist of Notre Dame, Pierre Chochereau, as well as Marie-Claire Alain, Piet Kee and Peter Hurford.

Setchell emigrated to New Zealand in 1974 to take up a place lecturing at the University of Canterbury School of Music. He is now associate professor of music, university organist and keyboard musicianship specialist. He combines his university work with a busy schedule of recitals and concerts. He has toured Europe and played in festivals and on famous organs all over the world. Setchell has given regular performances on the Town Hall’s Rieger pipe organ since its installation in 1997 and is the organ’s curator. The organ has been inaccessible since the 22 February 2011 earthquake, but survived the earthquakes virtually unscathed.
