On June 5 we presented at the MPAC in McKinney, TX our program Hooray for Hollywood with John Ledwon as the featured organist. John is one of the staff organists at the El Capitan theatre in Los Angeles. Those who are familiar with John know what kind of a program he can deliver. He did not disappoint!
The first half of the program he played several popular and light classical pieces. The second half he presented a medley of several Disney tunes, all well-known and popular. The registrations he used throughout brought out sounds we didn't know existed in this instrument. One comment afterwards by one of our local organists was that John made the organ sound like it had 24 ranks, not 17. It was a good program!
One important and satisfying note - there were no problems with the organ. All the work done this past month by several members in the chapter paid off handsomely.
