Rhys Boak is one of Australia's busiest organists. He is in constant demand locally and internationally as both a recitalist and accompanist. He is currently the organist and manager of music at St. Michael's Church, Melbourne.
Rhys Boak was born in Melbourne. He studied organ with John Mallinson and Douglas Lawrence OAM at Melbourne University, and harpsichord with Ann Murphy.
He is a veteran of several concert tours including tours to Europe and Asia and his playing can be heard on more than a dozen CD recordings both as a soloist and as an accompanist to many of Australia's finest choral ensembles such as the Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir and Choir of Ormond college where until recently he held the post of College Organist.
In 2006 Rhys travelled to China where he gave a series of concerts with fellow Australian musician Geoffrey Tozer featuring the rare combination of Piano and Organ in duet. They ended each concert with a series of improvisations on local folk melodies. In 2011 Rhys again toured Germany, Denmark and France with the Australian Chamber Choir visiting Leipzig's Thomaskirche, where J.S. Bach was organist, as well as performing on several important historic instruments such as the Silberman organs of Freiburg Cathedral.
