Wicks Organs - Cory Wright

Cory Wright

Shop & Production Supervisor

A native of Tonawanda, NY, Cory discovered pipe organs at age 12 while attending a concert on the Wurlitzer organ at the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda. Shortly after that first encounter, he became a regular volunteer and played preshow overtures on the Wurlitzer for 15 years as one of several house organists. After high school he worked for a short time at H.L. Schlicker Inc, before being lured to work with Wicks representatives in NYC and Ohio on new installations and service. It was this association that opened the door for his relocation to Highland, IL in 2004 to work for Wicks full time. He began in our service dept. and now oversees operations in our shop, directs installations and also works directly with customers on new projects and proposals.

Starting with raw materials, Darrin spends his time, like a chef, crafting many custom recipes for each project he works on. You will find no cans of store-bought stains here. All of our stains are custom blended inhouse, in order to achieve a nearly seamless match to samples provided. Working either from a new sample provided by the customer, or utilizing over 100 years’ worth of inhouse samples for over 6400 instruments. Darrin takes his craft seriously, and his high-quality finishes are present in each project that leaves our finishing dept.
