ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

From: Ken Evans, June 1998

RTOS installed a Wurlitzer 3/8 (opus 1492) in the 400-seat Eisenhart Auditorium located on the campus of the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). It was dedicated and presented to the RMSC on Columbus Day (quite suitable for an opus 1492) in 1978. This instrument, which originally came from the Capitol Theater in Worcester, Massachusetts, has now been expanded to 12 ranks. The most recent addition, in December 1996, was a 61-pipe Clarinet rank. This instrument has been used for dance parties, Mardi Gras celebrations, Halloween parties, pizza parties and other fun events. The RMSC and RTOS have jointly produced elementary school age education programs on this instrument. This instrument was used for regularly scheduled membership concerts for almost two years while the 4-manual Auditorium Center console was completely refurbished.
