The Free State Theatre Organ Society is
now a chapter of the American theatre
organ society!

Some of you might wonder what is going on with the Free State Theatre Organ Society. We are awaiting permission from the administration of Spring Grove Hospital Center to gain access to our building (Stone Cottage E) and ultimately Rice Auditorium. While the Governor has opened up theatres to a partial occupancy, we need to remember that this is a hospital and there are additional concerns here. The administration has informed us that we will be alerted to when we might return to the property.


Meanwhile we are still active working on finalizing our plans for the organ and helping out members with projects of their own. Mark Hurley is upgrading his 50 year old Rodgers with modern organ sound generation and a combination action from Artisan Organ. We have also helped Dick Kline with some refinements to his organ’s Uniflex electronic relay system.
