ABOUT Christoph Bull
Christoph Bull is a concert organist, pianist, singer, composer, and recording artist.
Most recently, he gave the inaugural concert of the new Pacific Symphony organ series at Segerstrom Hall (Orange County Performing Arts Center) and independently released the premiere recording of the pipe organ at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
He likes organ music, rock music, and rocking organ music--ever since practicing the organ in the choir loft and with a rock band in the basement of the same church as a teenager.
Born and raised in Mannheim, Germany, he now resides in Los Angeles.
He started improvising on the piano at age 5 and has been giving public concerts since the age of 12.
He’s studied at top conservatories in Germany and the U.S. and won international awards in Performance and Composition.
Equally versed in classical and popular music, he has performed around the world, including Europe, the U.S., Russia and India, at venues such as Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A.; Lincoln Center in NYC; the Catholic Cathedrals of Moscow, Salzburg, Saint-Denis and Los Angeles; the Classical Underground in Carson, California--and also at rock clubs like the Viper Room, the Roxy, and the Whisky in L.A.
Among others, he’s worked with Steven Spielberg, Harry Connick Jr., George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Lili Haydn and Nishat Khan.
His genre-crossing concert and CD series organica presents the pipe organ to a new audience by combining classical with contemporary music,
adding computer visuals, live painting, other instruments, voice and dance--taking the instrument to the cutting edge.
Christoph is also interested in politics, theology, and sports. He won the German national youth championship in baseball with his team BC Tornados Mannheim and ran the L.A. Marathon four times.
