Wolff von Roos is a young and active concertist who has performed in venues across the United States & Canada. Wolff has studied with renowned organists such as Raul Prieto Ramirez who is currently the San Diego Civic Organist and former professor of organ at Ball State University, and at the organ academy of McGill University of Montreal, QC with teachers such as Professor Hans Ola-Ericcsson & Katlyn Emerson. Wolff currently holds a Bachelors degree in the science of music and a bachelors degree in organ performance from Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Wolff has been described and hailed as a musician that shows no fear of the instrument and isn't afraid to get the most out of it. Wolff is most known for his use of improvisation and is greatly influenced by the stylings of Pierre Cochereau, David Briggs, Olivier Latry, Thomas Ospital, Jean Guillou, and Wayne Marshall. Wolff currently holds the title of Artist in Residence at Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, IN and is also the Principal Organist of First Friends Quaker Meeting in Indianapolis, IN. Wolff has also been a featured performer on the San Francisco American Guild of Organists National Black History Month Concert as well the radio music program, Pipedreams, that's based in St. Paul, MN and produced and distributed by American Public Radio, where the music of pipe organs can be heard all across the United States. By day you can find him on the organ bench, but by night you'll most likely find Wolff playing guitar with his jazz funk & fusion group, "Von Roos & The Wolffpack". On the sidlelines for fun when not playing music, you can also find Wolff on the road or in a different city in various hot rod muscle cars. Wolff is also the only living person in the whole field of organists that wears a cape in real life.
