Melbourne Theatre Organ are proud to present American organist extraordinaire Jonas Nordwall in Theatre Organ-ic. An internationally renowned virtuoso, Jonas is equally skilled in traditional classical and popular schools of musical performance. This kid can bang keys in multi-styles, na mean?
Described as ‘a real grand master of the organ arts’ (San Jose Mercury News), Jonas directs music for a church and is down with a Symphony Orchestra in Portland, Oregon.
He’ll be hitting the dopest cuts from Bach and Tchaikovsky, covering American composer Richard Purvis, and going ill with hits originally penned by John Williams, like the gear from the Harry Potter movies.
As a proponent of underground electronic glitch styles, I often wonder what would happen if guys like this rolled in those scenes… The tunes would probably be a lot better, cause guys like this are REAL musos. Check this joint.
WHEN: Friday, 17 August, 1pm
WHERE: Melbourne Town Hall, 90/120 Swanston Street Walk, Melbourne
