Glenn Amer

  • Musical Director

  • A unique entertainer, Glenn Amer is the only artist in the history of recordings to have made acoustically recorded cylinders, pianola rolls and compact discs.

    He was the youngest pianist to ever record pianola rolls, having made his first recordings for the Mastertouch Piano Roll Company when he was 17. Glenn has been working with singers since his first concert at the age of eleven. He cannot remember how many singers he has played for, but for many years was the exclusive accompanist to Rita Hunter CBE and Horst Hoffmann.

    Glenn’s first love was opera and he has worked as a pianist and conductor with Opera Queensland, Pacific Opera and Opera Australia. In his ‘spare’ (non-operatic) time, he can be found touring the world presenting his one-man show where he is described as having “the fingers of Liberace and the voice of Mario Lanza”!

    He is musical director for The Seven Sopranos and their debut album for ABC Classics shot to the top of the charts when it was released. Glenn is a passionate collector of historic 78s and cylinders and currently has approximately 20,000 of them in his collection.
