Organist sets musical tone for NHL's Washington Capitals [Lutherville-Timonium]

When the Washington Capitals hit the ice for home games, it's not just their skill with hockey sticks that gets fans fired up. There's another "player," who helps keep the momentum going. For 16 seasons now, Bruce Anderson, a Lutherville resident, has been the organist for the Capitals.

Whether he's performing on the organ, or using a keyboard or synthesizer, Bruce aims to build excitement in the stands. He mixes up his choice of selections from the traditional crowd favorite, "Let's Go Caps," to more current songs, such as "Ex's and Oh's." This season looks like it could be a championship one for the Capitals, as they head into the playoffs holding the top spot in their division. If so, Bruce's efforts to energize enthusiasts will be felt in the stands.

Bruce is also the owner and director of the Lutherville Music School and Lutherville Rock School. He employs 17 instructors, who offer classes in guitar, piano, voice, flute, drums, violin, cello, and viola. Bruce also serves as the instructor for the Yamaha Music School program that teaches young children to play the piano. Coming up in May will be a performance showcasing those bands formed through the Lutherville Rock School.
