ATTENTION!

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!

Streamed Recital - Joshua Stafford

Historic Organ Restoration Committee will present a free broadcast recital on Wednesday, June 24that NOON on the Midmer-Losh pipe organ—the world’s largest musical instrument ever built with its 33,112 pipes.  This recital is 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.

 

Organist Joshua Stafford will present a half hour of varied music including Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite.  This recital will be streamed via Facebook at the following page:

www.facebook.com/boardwalkorgans at 12 NOON on Wednesday June 24th, 2020.  The recital is made possible by funds from the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
