"Bringing People Together Through Music"

72Years of an Orchestra Leader!


The Walt Groller Orchestra motto is "bringing people together through music," for 72 years this remains true . This Grammy award-nominated band has played to international audiences and has recorded seven CDs. Walt was instrumental (so to speak) in bringing Musikfest to the Lehigh Valley in 1984 -- and he brought the chicken dance to Musikfest!
