What a great way to spend a Saturday evening listening to an organ concert by the Maestro Himself, Hector Olivera.

 

Whether in a prestigious venue like Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, Constitution Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, or in conjunction with a celebrated event like the Olympic games or the Classical Newport Music Festival, the most sophisticated and demanding organ aficionados claim that Maestro Hector Olivera is 'one of the greatest organists in the world today.'

   That is very evident  throughout this whole concert, as clearly he is an organ genius.

   Also attending the performance was Dennis Houlihan, former President of Roland USA, former President of Rodgers Instruments, and retired President of the National Association of Music Merchants.

organ has to offer. Demonstrating not only the incredible sounds, but his mastery of the organ.
