Christian Gautschi began his musical career as a self-taught organist in a small parish in his hometown of Brugg, Switzerland. He later studied at the University of the Arts in Zurich, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts (church organ) and two Master of Arts degrees (music education and church organ). He passed his final recital with distinction and was awarded the Joseph Auchter prize for his efforts to make church music, and the organ, more popular. Since October 2015 he has served as organist at the Reformed Church Zjurich-Oerlikon. His recital programs include, in addition to classical organ works, his own arrangements of pop songs, Swiss folk music, and other popular music.
