Audience members are in for a unique experience as Nathan combines the timeless sound of the pipe organ with 21st century virtual instrument technology to produce a signature sound no other collaboration of instruments and musicians can produce. Selections will include music from Slumdog Millionaire, Somewhere In Time, Newsies, and hits by Queen and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The program will also include brand new award-winning silent films from the International Youth Silent Film Festival, a program that challenges young filmmakers around the world to reinvent the art of silent film.


Nathan Avakian


Renowned for his tasteful blending of twenty-first century virtual instrument technology with theatre organ music, Nathan offers performances that satisfy contemporary musical tastes and pay tribute to the historical legacy of the theatre organ. As resident organist and composer for the International Youth Silent Film Festival, Nathan creates music that inspires young filmmakers around the world as they reinvent the art of silent film. 


Nathan’s fascination with the theatre organ began at age four with a visit to the Portland Organ Grinder Restaurant. He began formal organ studies with Donna Parker at age eleven and has also been frequently coached by Jonas Nordwall. Since winning the American Theatre Organ Society Young Organist Competition in 2009, Nathan has provided theatre organ entertainment across the United States and internationally.


Currently based in New York City, Nathan works as a freelance lighting designer. In 2014 Nathan received a B.F.A. degree in lighting design from Purchase College, State University of New York.
