For many in our church family, Allan’s musical gifts need no introduction. But for those who are new to our church, neighborhood, town or local community, know that you are in for musical treats as we grow our music ministry with Allan playing the two keyboards had helping us prepare for each worship service ahead of time. A native of Clinton, Allan has compositions performed in the United States and Europe. “From The Ruins Of An English Castle” premiered at the Paris Conservatory in 1963 and his Tone Poem, “The Devil’s Gate”, was premiered by the Worcester Symphony in 1969, receiving critical acclaim from the late music critic, Raymond Morin. Allan also performed George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F on the same program. A popular composition, “For My Love On Valentine’s Day”, (written for wife Donna) has become a Thayer Symphony concert tradition since the early 1990’s. As a jazz pianist, he has performed with Buddy DeFranco, Henry Mancini, Bob Hope, Patrice Munsell and Diahann Carroll. Other musical activities include founder and musical creator of the Worcester Pro Jazz Ensemble and the Worcester Theatre Orchestra. He was a piano instructor and co-director of the Jazz Studies program at Clark University for 22 years, piano instructor and Director of the Music Division at the Performing Arts School of Worcester, piano instructor at the Joy of Music Program in Worcester and the Thayer Performing Arts Center.
