John O'Donnell is Monash University Organist, Founder/Director of the celebrated Ensemble Gombert, Musical Director to the Canterbury Fellowship and keyboard player of Capella Corelli. He performs regularly as conductor, organist, harpsichordist and pianist, and is also active in music research and editing. John tours Europe regularly, performing mostly on historic organs. He is the first person ever to perform Bach's complete keyboard works (organ and harpsichord) in public.

His recordings of the complete keyboard works of Johann Caspar Kerll (which he had previously edited for the Viennese publisher Doblinger) and organ works of Bach have met with international acclaim, an album of the latter named “Best Recording of the Year” (2000) in the London International Record Review. During 2009 John conducted a highly-acclaimed season of Handel's opera Xerxes with Victorian Opera, for which he was nominated for a Green Room Award, and in 2014 he directed four performances of the oldest extant opera, Peri's Euridice , newly edited from the original print, at the Woodend Winter Arts Festival.
