Organist Olivera to perform in West Dundee

Organist Maestro Hector Olivera will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 845 West Main Street in West Dundee, according to a news release.


Besides virtuoso playing skills, Maestro Olivera is also a world renown improviser. He is entertaining with his Spanish accent and witty sense of humor. He has been known to say, “Hold onto your hats, this is going to be loud and fast.”

As the son of an organist, Olivera started playing the organ at age 3 and entered the Buenos Aires Conservatory at age 6. He tells the story of growing up without access to much printed/published organ music. As a boy, he had recordings which he listened to and transcribed great organ symphonies and concertos.
