Mighty Wurlitzer Organ Preview Concert, April 13th, 7:30pm at Fox Tucson Theatre. Be one of the first to hear the Mighty Wurlitzer play at the Fox for the first time in 60 years! Enjoy Buster Keaton’s 1920 silent film One Week as it was originally screened, accompanied by the Mighty Wurlitzer! VIP ticket holders will get to see the organ up close and visit with organ experts Ron Rhode and Grahame Davis. $25 general tickets · $75 VIP reception tickets. This event will feature Arizona organ expert, Ron Rhode.

Ron Rhode has been a major performer in the theater pipe organ world for more than four decades. Since 1974 his concert career has taken him across the US from coast to coast, into Canada, England, and Australia. Ron is known for his “traditional” theater organ style, playing music from the golden era of the “Unit Orchestra”, the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Growing up in Illinois, and moving to Phoenix in 1973, Ron played theater organ for Organ Stop Pizza in Phoenix and Mesa for 21 years. He has continued a career in church music, which started at his Illinois home church, Port Byron Methodist Church, and is currently service musician at 1st United Methodist Church in Phoenix. In his nonmusical life, Ron taught 2nd grade and Library Science for Mesa Public Schools, Mesa, AZ, until his retirement after 20 years. Since that time, he has been teaching 5th and 6th grade Class Piano for Arizona School for the Arts, Phoenix, AZ.

Another ongoing facet of Rhode’s life has been his legacy of recordings on many of the finest theater organ installations to be found! He has received great reviews for both the technical production and the musical artistry. An old/new recording is now available!

Recordings can be purchased through his new website.
