Description

Ken Double at the 4/22 Grande Page Organ along with Vocalist Daniel Mata and Tommie Macon and the Gentle Men of Jazz



The thrilling tenor voice of Stars of Tomorrow winner Daniel Mata, combined with the smooth jazz stylings of the Songbird of the South Tommie Macon and her Gentle Men of Jazz, and backed by the swinging jazz ensemble of the Grande Page theatre pipe organ.

The Artists

Ken Double has toured the country and around the world performing variety shows on the theatre pipe organ, and happens to be one of the organists who regularly presents the "Mighty Mo" organ to Atlanta Fox Theatre patrons. This concert will focus not only on the grand music of the Grande Page Theatre organ, but will feature vocalist Daniel Mata - Lassiter High School graduate and Hearst Scholarship winner attending Belmont University in Nashville. Daniel’s rich tenor voice is nothing short of stunning.

The second half of the performance will feature Atlanta’s jazz sensation Tommie Macon and the Gentle Men of Jazz, who have been featured in concerts and club appearances all across Atlanta. Tommie could often be heard with the late Bob Fountain at McKinnon’s in Buckhead on those wonderful Wednesday nights, and her presentations of the jazz greats and the Great American Songbook are simply sensational.

The Instrument

The 1927 Grande Page theatre organ was originally designed for WHT Radio in Chicago, and it was said to be the largest such theatre organ installed in a radio station. The organ eventually made its way to Atlanta in 1977 and was donated to the Atlanta Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society in 1991. After drafting an agreement in 1992 to incorporate the instrument into the newly proposed Stephenson High School, restoration efforts soon began to prepare the one-of-a-kind musical treasure for its new home.

The Grande Page organ boasts a massive four-manual (keyboard) console with 300 stoptabs controlling over 1,500 pipes across two chambers. Among the pipework are actual percussion instruments, including a marimba, glockenspiel, and two xylophones, along with drums, tambourines, cymbals and other sound effects which make the theatre organ unique.
