Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society promotes the preservation of theatre organs such as the Playhouse’s 1927 Wurlitzer organ and regularly presents concerts and events featuring these beautiful historic instruments.
This afternoon’s concert features Orchestral Transcriptions by World renowned organist Jonas Nordwall. An international virtuoso organist equally skilled in both traditional classical and modern/popular schools of musical performance, Nordwall has performed in North America, Japan, Europe, and China and has made eight concert tours to Australia.

In 1999, he was an adjudicator and guest recitalist for the Swiss International Organ Competition in Geneva, Switzerland.
Nordwall has performed numerous programs on the world-famous Spreckels outdoor pipe organ in San Diego’s Balboa Park for their International Artist Series. He has more than 30 highly acclaimed recordings on a variety of labels. His recordings are frequently heard on the syndicated radio show, Pipedreams.
