ARAM BASMADJIAN is one of the most accomplished young organ virtuosos in America. Throughout the United States, his performances as an organ recitalist have won acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

With an expansive repertoire not limited to traditional organ works, Aram Basmadjian's diverse programs provide a musically rewarding experience as he conquers the "King of Instruments".

Aram began his piano studies in West Chester, Pennsylvania at seven years of age with Marguerite Pond, making his first solo appearance just six months later. He was a scholarship student at the Wilmington Music School in Wilmington, Delaware. There he studied piano with Benjamin Whitten and began his organ studies under the direction of Ray Urwin.

In 1983, he made his debut with the world acclaimed Philadelphia Orchestra. Aram continued his study of the piano with Findlay Cockrell at the State University of New York. After relocating to Salt Lake City, he studied organ with M. Lee Suitor at the University of Utah. In 1986, Aram made his organ debut performing a full length recital at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Shortly thereafter, Aram was awarded a scholarship to Utah State University to study organ under James Drake. Having a strong desire to broaden his approach to the organ, Aram began coaching repertoire with Virgil Fox's protégé, Ted Alan Worth, who encouraged him to pursue a concert career.

As part of the Allen Artists Program, Aram Basmadjian continues to perform concerts and workshops across the nation.
