Jonathan Gradin’s Pipe Organ Page

This is me standing next to the console of the 4/34 Austin at Spokane’s Lewis and Clark High School

                 I am a journalism major at North Idaho College, as well as an ardent fan of theater and classical pipe organs.

                 I collect vinyl records of anything except relatively modern music, e.g. pop/rock, modern country and rap. I like almost everything else, including classical, big band, easy listening, old-time country and of course pipe organ music.

                 I am the youngest member of the Spokane First Nazarene chapter of the American Theater Organ Society.

                 I am also a member of the Spokane chapter of the American Guild of Organists

                

 

Biographies

                 Last semester, I wrote a few biographies for my history class; I chose to do people who were associated with the pipe organ. Here they are:

#1: Cavaille-Coll (French Pipe Organ Builder)

#2: Edwin H. Lemare (Concert Organist/Composer/Transcriber)

#3: Rosa Rio (106-year-old Theater Organist)

                 Here are a few free organ sheet music pieces which I have come across. Enjoy!

#1: Victor Searle: Joy to the World (With parts of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus)

#2: Victor Searle: Adeste Omnes Angeli (Medley/Combination of Adeste Fideles and Angels We Have Heard on High) Special cover artwork is here.

Victor Searle has other music pieces and arrangements available; email him for more information. Here is a list of his music.
