Grand Rapids Public Museum Finishes 2017 Mighty Wurlitzer Organ Concert Series with Holiday Shows
Join the Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) for the final Mighty Wurlitzer Organ Concerts of the 2017 series with special holiday music performances by John Lauter on Friday, December 15 and Saturday, December 16.
Lauter will present holiday cheer this season bringing to life favorite holiday songs on the GRPM’s 1928 Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ. These concerts are great for families during the holiday season! Tickets are recommended to be purchased early, as they are likely to sell out.
A Detroit native, Lauter began his organ, piano and music studies at age 14, with his public debut at the Redford Theatre at age 16. He has presented concerts in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Boston, San Francisco, Phoenix, Denver, Wichita, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, Toronto and more. John has been on the staff of the Fox Theatre, and was staff organist of the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor for 17 years. He is the musical curator of the Stahl Museum in Chesterfield, MI and just completed the installation of a large Wurlitzer Theatre Organ there.
Shows will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, December 15 and at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 16 in the Meijer Theater at the GRPM.
