See the Wilshire Ebell Theatre Pipe Organ in Action
Did you know that the Wilshire Ebell Theatre houses a theatrical pipe organ?
The Barton theatre pipe organ is owned and operated by the Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society and their mission is to “preserve, restore, maintain, protect, promote and present a truly American musical invention, the theatre pipe organ and its musical art form, worldwide.” The Society owns three theatre pipe organs that are installed in Los Angeles venues (including our own Wilshire Ebell Theatre!) and regularly played by featured artists LATOS members. To ensure that the few remaining instruments are played whenever possible to provide entertainment to the public, the Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society presents “Going Retro! A Fun Salute to Music of the Early 1900s” at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre.
The matinee performance on Sunday July 27 at 2:30 p.m. includes performances by the flapper of our generation, Janet Klein and her Parlor Boys, along with John Reed-Torress on ragtime piano, Angie Hougen on classical guitar and of course the pipe organ played by Tony Wilson.
It is a rare opportunity to enjoy the sound this instrument makes. So don’t miss this chance to enjoy just such an opportunity! Tickets are family-friendly priced and available online at www.LATOS.org
See you there!
