    “Subscribers only,” Michael! Nuff said?

  2. No, it’s just a really short article trying to get people to attend the concert. Looking at the photos is the best part.

  3. It is surely a Wurlitzer. The Shenandoah Organ Studio beautifully restored a similar Wurlitzer 108 2/3 at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel in Staunton, Virginia. Our Old Dominion Theatre Organ Society web site has pictures and a description.

  4. Thanks for the posting Michael!

    Below is link to another story about the Walsenburg, Colorado Fox Theatre Wurlitzer that includes history of the instrument and information about the July 26, 2015 free concert. This is a very rare, unusual instrument.
