History

Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City contains two of the most important musical treasures in the world - the Midmer-Losh and Kimball pipe organs. The Midmer-Losh is the largest and loudest musical instrument on Earth. Both of these engineering marvels were groundbreaking in their day and still hold many of those titles today.

Education

Pipe organs have many educational aspects that are great studies for all of the STEAM subjects. Our team enjoys taking the opportunity to teach all age groups through tours and classes about how the pipe organ works and how each subject is represented extensively. 

Preservation

Besides being record holders, both the Midmer-Losh and Kimball pipe organs are major pieces of American musical history. Every piece that we restore is documented and cleaned with great care. We take pride in the small part we play in the long history of both of these musical treasures.
