…one of the most IMPRESSIVE MUSICAL EXPERIENCES I have EVER attended. Nathan is PERFECTION at its highest of highest levels. - Brian Winchell


...more than the advertised OUTSIDE THE BOXevent. So much so that two mature concert attenders were disappointed that it wasn’t the usual style of Wurlitzer concert...I on the other hand ROCKED MY TINY SOCKS OFF! - ArtBop

It’s BREATHTAKING to see the instrument that we love given new life when infused with today’s technology in such a DISCIPLINED and TASTEFUL way. - Greg Petty


If your Aunt Millie insisted on taking you to a theater organ concert, would you run for cover, imagining two long hours of roller rink promenades or solemn funeral home Muzak? Well, if she took you to Master Theater Organist Nathan Avakian, she’d be your NEW BEST FRIEND. - Broome Arts Mirror

He's not just the BEST YOUNG THEATER ORGAN PLAYER in the country. He's also the instrument's YOUNGEST EVANGELIST. - The Oregonian

Nathan Avakian is the most CREATIVE and TECHNICALLY-VERSED theatre organist I’ve ever heard. - Kerry O’Quinn, Creative Velocity Productions

Just when I thought it couldn't get any cooler, Avakian finished his show with a PHENOMENAL mashup of Queen's most famous songs.

Anyone who has doubts as to whether the Theatre Organ is a serious musical instrument, far more expressive than its classical counterparts and demanding the highest standards of MUSICIANSHIP, MEMORY and TECHNICAL ABILITY from its performers, had only to attend Nathan’s concert. - South Australia TOSA News
