Scott F. Foppiano is the proud owner of an Allen Organ Walt Strony Signature STR-4 Unit Orchestra (32 Theatre ranks, and 49 Classical ranks) theatre organ. The STR-4 incorporates the capabilities of a theatre organ as well as a classical organ. The organ was recently installed in his home in Charlotte, North Carolina.
"With the arrival of my new Walt Strony STR-4 Signature Allen Theatre Organ brings a dream instrument with which I can play and rehearse theatre and classical music equally, with total realism of sonic presence, subtlety and power, and without sacrificing any tonal nuances whatsoever!
The realism and superb quality of both the samples and audio equipment, coupled with their location, provide an awe-inspiring spread of sound. Likewise, the console is one of the richest and most beautiful I have ever seen in addition to its sheer ruggedness. It truly feels and responds like a substantial pipe organ! Allen Organ, and Walter Strony's inspired design, have given me a dream instrument, an investment, that I will enjoy for the rest of my life.
Thank you all, each and every one, for this incomparable gift of musical excellence!"
