Thomas Ospital

In 2015, the church St Eustache located in the center of Paris and home to France’s largest pipe organ — appointed him one of its two organists. In 2016, the Maison de la Radio in Paris proposed him to become the first organist in residence of the new organ built by Grenzing.
Born in 1990, Thomas Ospital began his musical studies at the Conservatoire Maurice Ravel in Bayonne, France. From 2008 until 2015, he was a student at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris. This conservatory awarded him first-place prizes in organ, improvisation, harmony, counterpoint and fugue.
In 2012, he served as Young Artist in Residence at the Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis King of France in New Orleans.
He won several prizes at the International Competition of Organ in Saragossa (Spain), International Chartres Competition, International Xavier Darasse competition in Toulouse, International Organ Competition of Angers.
He performs frequently in various countries as a soloist or with a choir and/or orchestra. Intent on perpetuating the art of improvisation in all its forms, including both liturgical and secular, he displays his talents in accompanying silent films.
