RON RHODE Plays Theatre Organ Pops!
Saturday evening, October 24, 1998
Original concert announcement
Ron Rhode concert at the Wilcox Wurlitzer enjoyed by many
The first-ever PSTOS evening concert at the Wilcox Wurlitzer in Gig Harbor was enjoyed by a
capacity crowd. Ron Rhode played a varied program of enjoyable music, including a generous
sprinkling of novelty piano numbers he has adapted to organ with piano. The instrument's grand piano
can be controlled from the organ console, making it a perfect pair of instruments for such numbers,
a favorite genre, of Ron's.
Weatherwise, it was a less-than perfect night, with some of the most difficult traffic anyone has
experienced in that area. In spite of this, folks came from as far away as Canada, Spokane, and
Salem, to enjoy the evening.
The Johnson home was festively adorned in preparation for upcoming holidays, and the
setting was extraordinarily warm and inviting.
PSTOS once again wants to express sincere gratitude to Leif and Bonnie Johnson for their support and
willingness to make their beautiful home available for concerts.
