This second hour is given over entirely to solos by Justin LaVoie, American Theatre Organ Society Young Artist Competition Winner in 2013. Performers in the first hour were students (or, in the case of Bill Porter, faculty) at the Eastman School of Music.

All performances highlight the 4-manual, 23-rank 1928 Wurlitzer organ as recorded on Sunday afternoon, April 24, 2016 by Zeitgeist Audio, Rochester, NY. Thanks to Paul Law and Russ Schaner of the Rochester Theatre Organ Society for keeping this marvelous instrument in such fine shape.

SPECIAL WEBSITE AUDIO EXTRAS: We invite you to share in Justin Lavoie's medley of Richard Rodgers tunes from Oklahoma and Professor Bill Porter's lovely rendition of Cole Porter’s My Romance, each introduced by the performer.
