Theatre, Youth Theatre, dance, music, art,
and.... Theater pipe organ!!

small auditorium. I enjoyed playing for the
responsive audience of 150+. The organ
has some very musical ranks including the

worked as it should. The organ performed

This facility has had an organ concert
series for 25+ years, and has featured
many top artists from around the world.

Center for inviting me to play as well as
being my ride to and from the airport.
Besides the organ series, the center is a
great place to visit with lots to offer. If
you're in the area, drop in, and tell them I
