Autumn By The Sea

     Boardwalk Hall’s musical heritage will take center stage on Sunday October 14, 2018, with Autumn by the Sea.  For the first time, the Historic Organ Restoration Committee will premiere a double concert featuring both pipe organs in the historic building in the same afternoon!  Local organist and choir director Scott Breiner will command both the Kimball pipe organ in the Adrian Phillips Theater and the mighty Midmer-Losh in the Main Arena, the largest pipe organ ever built and the world’s largest musical instrument.

     The concert will feature a variety of selections including classical, hymns, hits from stage and screen and popular music.  There will truly be music for the masses, the exact reason these instruments were placed in the building when it was built.

     Autumn by the Sea is being presented in partnership with Thrivent Financial, a 2018 Fortune 500 financial management/advisement company.  The concert begins at 3:00 PM, doors open at 1:00 for walkthroughs of the largest pipe organ in the world.  Tickets are $20.00 and may be purchased at the Boardwalk Hall Box Office or ticketmaster.com. 


You can help us today!  Follow the link below to our Crowdfunding page raising funds for a new recording of the Midmer-Losh.  You can donate there or you can create your own fundraising page to help us raise funds for the recording through your own social media channels!  The best part of this campaign is unlike typical Crowdfunding pages that take 9-13% of the money raised, this is a direct Crowdfunding through HORC and we have cut out the middle man.  Your donations go directly to HORC and help us to bring the music of the Midmer-Losh to the world!
