Nathan Avakian
Nathan Avakian, from Portland, Oregon, is the 2009 overall winner of the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) Young Theatre Organist Competition. His fascination with the theatre organ began at the age of four with a visit to the Portland Organ Grinder restaurant. He began formal organ studies with Donna Parker at age eleven and has been frequently coached by Jonas Nordwall.
As a concert artist, Nathan performs internationally for various organizations and organ preservation societies. Scholarships from ATOS, Columbia River Theatre Organ Society, and Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society have helped fund his lessons and trips to organ workshops in Colorado, Illinois, and Arizona. In 2010, Nathan was commissioned to compose five original theatre organ soundtracks for the Youth Silent Film Festival, a Portland Rose Festival event that gives young filmmakers the opportunity to create contemporary silent films to theatre organ music. Nathan is the current ATOS Youth Representative to the Board.
In addition to his experience as an organist, Nathan is a skilled theatre technician and musical theatre performer. A recent high school graduate of Beaverton's Arts and Communication Magnet Academy (ACMA), he is currently pursuing a B.F.A. degree in theatrical lighting design from the State University of New York at Purchase. In addition to performance and technical theatre experience with organizations including Oregon Children's Theatre, Krayon Kids Musical Theatre Company, Canby Community Theatre, and ACMA, Nathan completed 12 years of dance training and performance with Westside Dance Academy in various styles including tap, jazz, and ballet.
