More Information

Join us for an exciting afternoon of music as resident theatre organist David Peckham plays the Clemens Center’s Marr & Colton Theatre Organ. Featuring songs from both film and Broadway, the concert is sure to entertain the whole family!

A gentleman of multiple musical talents, David has been touring nationally and internationally as a theatre organist since 1980 and has performed at many of the finest theatre organs worldwide. Resident organist at the Clemens Center since 1977, he presents solo programs, silent film accompaniment and participates in other local community attractions.

David is the caretaker of this marvelous instrument, original to the 1925 Keeney Theatre (as this performance hall was known prior to the 1950s.) His passion for the playing and caring for organs began at an early age as he worked alongside his father, Lauren, who began the L.A. Peckham Pipe Organ Service.

Located in Mark Twain Country just south of the Finger Lakes, the Clemens Center is the region's premier performing arts center with two spectacular performance spaces. Mandeville Hall is a flexible, black box venue suitable for intimate performances, corporate events, and parties. The majestic Powers Theater is an architectural treasure that has been restored to its vaudevillian-era grandeur. Magnificent murals, gold-leaf details, and reconstructed opera boxes adorn the theater just as they did when it opened in 1925. The 1,618-seat venue has been called the most beautiful theatre between New York City and Buffalo—it is truly awe-inspiring! Renovation in 2008 included expanding the stage and upgrading technical equipment, making it possible to showcase the best in live entertainment. From nationally touring Broadway shows and dazzling dance programs to rousing rock 'n' roll concerts and feel-good family entertainment, the Clemens Center excites and delights audiences of all ages! The Center’s mission, though, extends beyond entertainment and into the community through school programs, outreach activities for the underserved, and subsidized facility rentals for its six Resident Companies: Common Time Choral Group, Elmira Little Theatre, New Heights Dance Theater, Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre, and Thursday Morning Musicales. These nonprofit arts organizations provide community members with the opportunity to perform several times a year on a professional theatre stage. The Clemens Center is the perfect place to connect with family and friends and enjoy memorable experiences that enrich, inspire, and amaze.
