Hector Olivera, Organ

Known as one of the most exciting organists of the 20th
century, international concert organist Hector Olivera will
entertain and exhilarate the audience with an unforgettable

Driffill

performance! Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mr. Olivera has

Franck

performed all over the world and has had audiences leaping

Bossi

to their feet with applause for years. His debut performance

Bach

at Overture Hall will feature organ classics like Vierne’s

Vierne

Carillon de Westminster, as well as transcriptions like Oblivion

Mozart

by another Argentine native, Astor Piazzola. He will close the

Piazzola

concert with an improvisation on a submitted theme that is

Olivera

sure to enthrall and amaze everyone in attendance.

Olivera swept the audience with
absolute Olympic virtuosity,
and that still doesn’t say it . . .

himself. – Atlanta Journal

WITH THE DIAPASON
BRASS & TIMPANI
Stamm

Rachmaninoff
Hillert
Gigout
DiLorenzo

In this sound spectacular, we introduce The Diapason
Brass & Timpani. The combined sonority of these

six outstanding artists will complement the already
highly varied tonal range of the Mighty Klais, charging
this exciting repertoire with extraordinary brilliance.

Bach

This unique program of music written for a variety of

Dinda

pairings will include Gigout’s Grand Choeur Dialogue,

Weaver

a transcription of Rachmaninoff’s famous Vocalise

Wagner

performed on horn, and an arrangement of Bach’s

Guilmant

famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ and
timpani. The event will have me pulling out all the stops
on our great Overture Concert Organ to match the
excitement and volume of my colleagues on stage!
