Thank you for visiting my site! My name is James Akoury.
Music has always been a passion of mine-from the early years with piano and drum lessons to the later years with voice and organ studies at a university with a culmination of a Masters Degree in organ performance.
The path to my career in music was not a straight one. I received my Bachelors in Accounting while passing the CPA the very first time.
Currently, I am the music Director at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in North Ridgeville, Ohio.
I like all genres of music from Bach to rock. However, I know my niche is singing classical, Broadway and pop.
Though I have always had a passion for organ, I know God blessed me vocally. Caruso, Lanza, Pavarotti, have always inspired me. Of course, they were all tenors. Susan Boyle is also a great inspiration to me as she is proof that it is never too late for dreams to become reality!
Through the years there have been many avenues and opportunities I have experienced along the way: The Cleveland Opera (chorus), HOLLYWOOD SALUTES SONDHEIM, (singer/dancer), and a small part in the movie, A CHRISTMAS STORY, where Ralphie’s dream of getting a Red Rider Rifle comes true.
My dream is to have some success nationally with my voice. I will continue to strive while hopefully touching peoples hearts with my performance.
