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!

A Tribute To Our Heroes!

Historic Organ Restoration Committee will present a musical tribute to all of our American Heroes, past and present, on Memorial Day, Monday May 25, 2020 at 12 noon with a free broadcast recital on the Midmer-Losh pipe organ—the world’s largest musical instrument ever built with its 33,112 pipes.

 

Organist Scott Breiner will present a half hour of patriotic music in honor of our military, our veterans, our first responders and those battling COVID-19 on the front lines during our current pandemic.  This recital will be streamed via Facebook at the following page:

www.facebook.com/boardwalkorgans at 12 noon on Memorial Day.  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.
