Music House Museum presents organist John Ledwon in concert on the ‘Mighty’ Wurlitzer Theater Organ on Oct. 21st at 7 pm. He will perform a variety of music from classics to contemporary. Ledwon is known and respected throughout the world and it is exciting to welcome him to Northern Michigan!! He resides just south of Las Vegas and commutes to LA where he is the staff organist at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre. Ledwon has traveled giving concerts throughout Europe, the US and Australia and was also a regular on the Mike Douglas Show. Presently, he does 5 to 10 concerts a year in various locations across the country and abroad, in addition to his commuting to the Disney theater for performances and recording.
Ledwon is a native of Southern California whose love for the organ began at 11 years old, when his family bought a Hammond M3 organ. After a visit to the Crome Organ Company in Los Angeles, he and his dad were absolutely enthralled. His dad searched around and found a 3/12 Wurlitzer and that started my formal introduction with the theatre organ. They had the organ professionally installed and his childhood passion for the theater organ has never waned.
