This summer, the American Theatre Organ Society’s Annual Convention will be in Los Angeles. People will travel from around the world to hear some and see some of the spectacular organs we get to enjoy in Southern California.
A few events will be open to the public, where you can hear these magnificent instruments — technically, “Unit Orchestras” — in the splendor of the majestic theaters they were built for. (Scroll past the video for details)
Here’s a taste of what you will hear, from my friend, Mark Herman:
If you want to attend one of the public events, here they are:
- Opening night at the Pasadena Civic (June 29, 8pm, $20)
- Safety Last at the Orpheum (June 30, 8pm, $15)
- Closing concert at Whittier HS (June 2, 8pm, Free Admission).
Tickets available at the door for these events.
