The theater organ will blend with 21st century technology in a show with something to offer for every listener. Selections will span a wide variety of eras and styles including jazz, classical, rock, and holiday tunes. The program will also include several three-minute contemporary silent films from the International Youth Silent Film Festival set to original theater organ music composed by Avakian.

As a concert artist, the 20-year-old musician performs internationally for various organizations and organ preservation societies. He recently completed a six-week concert tour of Australia and New Zealand, sponsored by the Theatre Organ Society of Australia.

On the home page of his website, www.avakiancreativeworks.com, there is currently a video of his newest arrangement utilizing a custom accompaniment track like the ones he will be integrating into his concert at The Phipps. There is also a link in the "music" section to more information about the Youth Silent Film Festival.

Tickets are $22 for adults and $15 for students of all ages. Discounts are available by purchasing season packages. Reservations may be made by contacting The Phipps ticket office at (715) 386-8409 or online at The Phipps.
