A protege of organist Al Melgard, Walt made his public performing debut at age 18. He has performed with films and symphony orchestras all over the world, and is frequently featured at conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the American Theatre Organ Society, which twice voted him its Organist of the Year and inducted him into its hall of fame in 2011.
*Walt Strony will perform with several movies and accompany Harold Lloyd’s ‘The Kid Brother’ at 1 p.m. Sunday, August 8 in the Plaza Theatre. *
