Concert Archive List

The first concert in the high school was just one year after the final concert in the theatre.  It was fitting that local organist, Larry Ferrari, played that concert.  Over 1200 attended that premier concert.  Since 1970, over 275 concerts have been presented along with a wide variety of other programs – from playing audience walk-in/walk-out stints to accompanying silent film shows, choruses and even the Nutcracker Ballet.

Chris Elliott was our artist on Saturday, June 9, 2007.  According to Stephen Ross, who oversees the DTOS Music Shop, “Movie accompaniment is really his forte. Chris studied with the legendary Gaylord Carter, and he is today one of the finest silent film organists on the circuit in addition to being a fine musician all around.”  Chris played a concert program in the first half and accompanied “IT”, Clara Bow’s classic film, in the second half.
