PATOS to Celebrate Over 50 Years in Pittsburgh 

Dave Wickerham

Dave Wickerham returns to Pittsburgh on Friday, June 9, 2023 with a program featuring music from the 1970s, as the Pittsburgh Area Theatre Organ Society (PATOS) salutes its 53 years of promoting theatre organ in Pittsburgh.  The event will be held at Keystone Oaks High School in Dormont, home of the PATOS Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ, at 7:30PM.                                

This program will mark Mr. Wickerham’s fourth appearance in Pittsburgh since 2013, reminding us once again that he’s always been an audience favorite.  Dave was originally scheduled to perform this feature of 1970s music (the decade of the founding of PATOS) back in April 2020, but it was postponed due to the pandemic.

“Better late than never!” says Dale Abraham, PATOS president.  “Dave’s musical styling and versatility has always been enthusiastically welcomed at Keystone Oaks, so we’re fortunate to have him back.”

Mr. Wickerham was honored by the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) as Organist of the Year in 2011.  Since then, he has performed at hundreds of organ venues across the USA.  Moreover, he’s toured Australia and New Zealand several times in the past 15 years.  Dave is also the resident theatre organist at the Crystal Theatre Performing Arts Center in Crystal Falls, Michigan.

PLEASE NOTE:  This event is on a Friday night (June 9), not our usual Saturday night.  Tickets for this event are available at the PATOS website ( or at the Showclix website (  Admission is $15 in advance, or $20 at the door.  Students are free with ID. 

Keystone Oaks Auditorium is located at 1000 Kelton Ave. in Dormont.  Plentiful free parking is available just off McNeilly Road adjacent to the auditorium.  Doors open at 6:45PM and the performance starts at 7:30PM.

The Pittsburgh Area Theatre Organ Society maintains the Pittsburgh area’s only Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ still operating in a public venue.  PATOS strives to keep the unique sounds of the theatre organ alive in Pittsburgh by presenting the instrument regularly throughout the year.
