On Thursday, December 7, 2017, in Music Hall's beautiful Ballroom, Friends of Music Hall (formerly SPMH) presented ''Happy Holidays with the Mighty Wurlitzer'' organ featuring award-winning organist Walt Strony.
Cincinnati's favorite vocalist Nancy James, and talented young dancers from the Cincinnati Ballet's Otto M. Budig Academy also performed, to the delight of the standing-room-only crowds.
Walt Strony has been twice voted ''Organist of the Year'' by the American Theatre Organ Society. This was his second performance on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ; the first was the 2013 Mighty Wurlitzer Holiday Concert.
The talented and beautiful Nancy James first performed with the Wurlitzer in May 2016, right before Music Hall closed for renovation, and she joined Walt Strony to bring back these popular theatre organ concerts.
