“This weekend marks a landmark occasion for the city of Portland’s century-old Kotzschmar organ, as it returns from a lengthy and costly overhaul that supporters hope will keep it going for another 100 years. Tom Porter took a look behind the curtain.”
I have never seen a town get behind the maintenance, presevervation, restoration, and re-installation of an organ like this before! Portland knows they have a treasure and they support it with attendance, surcharges on tickets, and newspaper, radio and television reports. Look at these gorgeous photos and listen to the radio report from WPBN, and your outlook on organ life will improve!
