Walt 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 theatre and classical organ. Theater organists are known for announcing their program from the stage and adapting their repertoire to compliment the individual nature of the variety of instruments that they play. Walt Strony is the only living organist to have been twice voted "Organist of the Year" by the American Theatre Organ Society - in 1991 and 1993. In 2011, he was inducted into the ATOS "Hall of Fame." His performance in Portland on the Kotzschmar organ promises to surprise and delight all who attend! Please join us for a pre-concert talk at 6:30 PM in the Rehearsal Hall of Merrill Auditorium. Tickets available through the PortTIX box office, porttix.com, 207-842-0800.

"Impressions:" an evening of jazz featuring organist Jean-Willy Kunz on the Kotzschmar Organ and his jazz quintet. The organ is often associated with the church, with an austere and codified musical repertoire, and with an audience from another era. Over the course of centuries, from the Middle Ages to the present, it has sometimes been a simple bystander in the history of music, but at others a key agent developing musical style. Now, in today’s era of cultural convergence and artistic crossbreeding, Impressions presents the organ in an atypical role as, accompanied by instruments with which it rarely associates, it embarks on a musical journey in search of original repertoire. Jean-Willy Kunz is the first organist in residence of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. In addition to playing both with the orchestra and in recital, he sees to the development and showcasing of the OSM's Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique installed at Maison symphonique de Montréal.

Hector Olivera is one of the most sought after international concert organists. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began playing the pipe organ when he was three years of age. At age five, he played for Eva Peron. At twelve, he entered the University of Buenos Aires. And, by eighteen, had performed for heads of state and celebrities throughout Latin America. Ticket revenue from this event will be added to our Scholarship Fund, to help the Music hall Board of Trustees to annually award scholarships to graduating high school students who plan to pursue a degree in a music-related field.

A fast-rising star on the international stage, Benjamin Alard has been hailed for his “intellectual mastery” (The Globe and Mail) in his performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music. Join him in his BEMF concert series début in a journey through the great master’s music for harpsichord and organ. Before settling in Leipzig, Bach spent much of his early life traveling across Germany, gaining fame for his virtuosic keyboard playing. Bach immersed himself in the local German styles but just as eagerly exposed himself to music from Italy, France, and England. Experience the vivid contrasts of a youthful Bach’s intense keyboard writing, at turns electrifying and serene, as he explored (and often tried to surpass) these diverse influences. Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm. <a href="http://www.bemf.org/pages/concerts/18-19/alard.htm" target="_blank">http://www.bemf.org/pages/concerts/18-19/alard.htm</a>
