Celebrating the Jubilee with Worthing Wurlitzer favourites.

The Diamond Jubilee concert at Worthing Assembly Hall on June 3 celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a performance by three prestigious organists.

Acclaimed American musician Walt Strony will be joined by Wurlitzer regulars Simon Gledhill and Richard Hills as they perform a selection of music which has been chosen to commemorate the jubilee.

The Worthing Wurlitzer is the largest Wurlitzer organ in public entertainment in Europe and is renowned throughout the world for its sound and quality which are complemented by the concert acoustics of the Assembly Hall.

Walt Strony is one of America's most sought after concert organists, known for his symphonic arrangements of popular music.  In addition to his musical skill, Walt is known as a pipe and digital organ consultant-tonal finisher. In 2008 the Allen Organ Company commissioned him to design a new four-manual instrument which has been named the Walt Strony Signature Series Organ. 

Walt is the only living organist to have been voted Organist of the Year twice by the American Theatre Organ Society.  He was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2011 and remains the youngest person to have received the accolade.  Throughout his career he has performed with a number of orchestras including Calgary Symphony, Allentown Symphony, El Paso Symphony and Symphony Silicon Valley. 

Wurlitzer owner Jim Buckland says: “It is a great privilege to have Walt Strony perform on the Worthing Wurlitzer. I am delighted the Mayor of Worthing will be present to witness this splendid concert which is an opportunity to appreciate a world-famous instrument played by an internationally-renowned organist.”
