Dave Calendine is an amazingly talented organist and pianist and a great entertainer. As a young organ student, Dave visited the Akron Civic Theater, where organist Lyn Larsen performed on The Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Dave was wowed by this incredible pipe organ. By l6, his skills were so impressive that he was offered a job playing the Wurlitzer at the theater. He played there for three years and eventually went on to perform on several theatre organs around Ohio, the US and overseas. Now a resident of the Detroit area, Dave is a staff organist at The Fox Theater, is the organist for The Detroit Red Wings, has accompanied the Rockettes in both Detroit and New York, performs at The Redford Theater and at his church as well as concerts at the Sanfillipo Foundation in Illinois, and at the national Music Box Society International conventions. Dave is a frequent performer for our silent film series at the Music House Museum on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, which made its way "up north".
Seating is limited and this event unusually sells out! The Music House Museum is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
