About The Event

The Ernest M. Skinner Organ (Op. 265, 1916) currently housed in the Alpenrose Dairy has a storied history: It was installed in the Civic Auditorium and featured illustrious performers such as Flor Peeters and Pietro Yon before being dismantled and put into storage when the venue underwent significant remodeling and later rechristened as the Keller Auditorium.  In the 1970s David Bruce Newman installed the organ in the Opera House in Alpenrose Dairy Land. Our program will feature interviews with chapter members who will share their stories about the organ’s history and perform on the organ before it is dismantled and shipped to Missouri for restoration.  Join us to celebrate the history of the Skinner organ say farewell to an old friend.
