The Man Behind the Swell Shades

Brian Ebie is an organist, performer, educator, tuner, technician, historian, perfectionist, and hands-down the most batty for the organ person you are likely to ever meet.

Brian holds bachelors and master’s degrees in education and music performance from the University of Akron and the doctor of philosophy in music education/educational psychology from Kent State University.

A native of small town Ohio, Brian Ebie's musical instincts came to him as early and as naturally as the ability to walk, picking out tunes on the piano around age four and starting his first church organ gig at age nine. The pipe organ became his life's obsession as a teenager, when he began private study with well known organist and professor Barbara MacGregor.

His passion for the King of Instruments shows through in his dedication and quick-response to ensure each organ sounds its best for every rehearsal, every performance, and every worship service.

At the Organ Console

Brian Ebie welcomes opportunities for organ performances at churches throughout Northeast Ohio. As a concert organist, he has given the world premiere of commissioned works at an American Guild of Organists convention and played for large audiences in churches around the United States and Europe.

Solo recitals include a variety of pieces designed to be accessible to audiences and to highlight the uniqueness of the individual pipe organ. Organ dedications or re-dedications after getting an organ playing again are a delight for Brian, bringing the organ and its wide-ranging variety to congregations who will mostly hear it most often only on hymns.

Brian's wife, Laura Hoopes Ebie - a professional flutist, often joins him on concerts throughout the year. The marriage --pun intended-- of the flute and organ allows both instruments to highlight unique timbres and sounds, not often heard in the performance realm. Together, they have a variety of pieces and programming options ranging from classical to Celtic, hymns to patriotic favorites, and more that please and inspire audiences time and time again.
