Martin Ellis, a native of Central Indiana, is an artist that has for many years bridged the boundary between the classical and popular music worlds. As an active theatre and classical organist, pianist, and music arranger, Martin has brought innovative programming, creative arrangements, and a unique style to his performances worldwide.
Additionally, Martin performed with the Indianapolis Symphony as a featured organ soloist for two years in the nationally recognized Yuletide Celebration Productions, and has performed with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, the Carmel Symphony Orchestra, and has toured in most countries of Europe and throughout the United States.
As a theatre organist, Martin is an active solo artist and has performed in many of the major theatre organ venues throughout the country and was one of the “house” organists for the Sanfilippo Palace de Musique in Chicago on the largest theatre pipe organ in the world. His experience has lead to posts as an entertainer at Milwaukee’s Piper Music Palace, and for one year at Uncle Milt’s Pipes and Pizza of Vancouver, Washington. For over 15 years now, Martin is a member of Trio Con Brio with Donna Parker and Jonas Nordwall that present concerts featuring three organs played simultaneously.
