Activity overview:

Wally's family and friends have been enjoying his music for over seven decades. Wally began piano and organ lessons at age eleven. He played the organ at Bethlehem Lutheran church in West Dundee, Illinois, in 1938, at age sixteen. Since then, playing music at the keyboard has been his passion and pleasure. THE LATEST: Local TV aired a feature on him. The link-- http://www.wilx.com/news/localnews/headlines/93-Year-Old-Williamston-Man-is-a-Hit-on-YouTube-363536601.html?device=phone&c=y
