Effective Immediately: Wednesday recitals and Curator’s Tours are canceled until further notice.

In light of recent events and in an effort to take all proper precautions we will suspend recitals and tours until further notice. As those of you who have taken the tour before are aware, it is a very tactile experience. Visitors must hold handrails, come in contact with many surfaces and in some cases even person to person contact. Safety is our top priority, for our staff, volunteers, and visitors. We look forward to resuming tours and recitals when it is safe and appropriate. As always, thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and healthy!

Peter Richard Conte - October 14, 2020

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, October 14 at 12:00 noon EDT as we welcome back our friend, Wanamaker Grand Court Organist, Peter Richard Conte to the Midmer-Losh organ with another fantastic program.


*** Due to changes with Facebook, this broadcast and all future broadcasts will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/boardwalkorgans ***

You can follow our YouTube channel to get notifications when we go live, and we will post a link tomorrow prior to noon with the stream as well.  


Peter will play a varied program including:

  • Marche triomphale: Nun danket alle Gott, Opus 65, No. 59. - Sigfrid Karg-Elert
  • Gavotte, from ‘Le Temple de la Gloire' - Jean-Phillipe Rameau, trans. Edwin Lemare
  • Pièce héroïque - César Franck 
  • How Fair and Pleasant art Thou, Opus 18, No. 5 - Marcel Dupré
  • Suite from ‘Carmen’ - Georges Bizet, arr. Edwin Lemare/Peter R. Conte


Historic Organ Restoration Committee is presenting these recitals as part of an ongoing broadcast series of the organs of Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall so that patrons can still enjoy the instruments while remaining socially distant.


The recital is made possible in part by funds from the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
