Biography
John Holler (1904-1977) was a composer, arranger, publisher, and organist. He worked primarily in churches, although, especially early in his career, he did perform in the occasional secular concert. While Holler performed in churches around the United States, he worked most often around his home in Queens, New York. He composed religious music for the organ and adapted or arranged the works of other composers for his instrument. At various points during his career, Holler was associate editor for the music publishing company, H. W. Gray, organist and choirmaster of St. Mark's Church in Jackson Heights, and also served as treasurer for the American Guild of Organists. After an accident which damaged his hand, he retired from playing the organ in 1961.
