Acclaimed organist Walter Strony will celebrate 45 years of performing with a program featuring “something old – something new.”
Strony is one of America’s premier concert organists. He made his public debut in 1974 at the age of 18 and has since established himself as one of few organists equally at home playing both theater and classical organ.
Mr. Strony has performed hundreds of concerts from coast to coast in the United States as well as in Japan, Australia, England, and Canada. In addition, he has performed at many conventions of the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) and the American Guild of Organists.
In July 2007, he performed the first solo organ recital to be presented in many years at New York’s Radio City Music Hall for the ATOS 2007 convention. In June 2016, he was featured for the second time in an evening concert on the famous Wanamaker organ in Philadelphia, the world’s largest fully functioning pipe organ.
He is the only living organist to have been twice voted Organist of the Year by the ATOS, in 1991 and 1993. In 2011, he was inducted into the ATOS Hall of Fame. He has performed with the Calgary Symphony, Allentown Symphony, El Paso Symphony, and Symphony Silicon Valley.
In addition to his fine reputation as a concert organist, Strony is well known for his many recordings. His first CD, Phoenix, was rated 10/10 by CD Review, the highest rating given by this prestigious publication. He has recorded over 31 albums, with his most recent CD (2013) being recorded on the Aveni Wurlitzer in Gates Mills, Ohio, an instrument he designed.
Tickets are $24 for adults and $17 for students of any age.
