Presenter/Programmer

Christopher Ellis has had a long association with MBS stations. During his demanding working life as a teacher and Principal of independent schools in Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide, he was an involved listener. On retiring, he was delighted to be able to spend more time in a community of people who share his interest in music and broadcasting. He became a programmer and presenter, first at 5MBS Adelaide, where he presented a variety of general and specialist programs, and then here at 3MBS, where he currently presents Music for Keyboard. Christopher learned the piano and organ as a child and has been organist at churches in Sydney and at All Saints’ Cathedral, Bathurst, where he was also Choirmaster. He has long been a chorister and currently sings with Victoria Chorale. So it comes as no surprise that he is particularly drawn to the music of J.S. Bach. At present he is enjoying exploring the Bach cantatas.
