To spotlight this magnificent instrument, "Wonders of the Wurlitzer" organ concerts are held at on specific Mondays and Wednesdays in the Spring and Fall. All concerts are free and open to the public. People of all ages are welcome to listen to the music performed by local organists who share their time and talent to keep a treasured tradition alive.
