About the Shows:
20 / 20 is the beginning of shows leading to the Wichita Wurlitzer centennial in 2026. The show presents a variety of music since 1926. The Wurlitzer is limited only by the artist’s imagination.
Justin Stahl is the artist for 20 /20 and is a native of Beech Grove, Indiana. He has entertained thousands of patrons of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in the last eight productions of their annual Yuletide Celebration by playing the Wurlitzer pipe organ installed at the Hilbert Circle Theatre.
Sounds of Silents
Sound for silent movies came only from the orchestra, theatre organ, or pianist in each theatre. More than 10,000 theatre organs were built to give the movies their voices. Music soundtracks for today’s movies evolved from these live accompaniments for the silents.
The Wichita Wurlitzer tonal palette permits a range of music from Bach to Bacharach to be performed. Richard Elliott and Brett Valliant are respectively the principal organists for the Mormon Tabernacle Æolian-Skinner and the Wichita Wurlitzer.
Big Band Jazz
The Delano Jazz Orchestra joins the Wichita Wurlitzer for an evening of Big Band Jazz. Experience the back and forth improvisation between the orchestras.
