Notes from the Longwood Organ

January 28, 2011
Then there are those who know about our wonderful Aeolian Organ and have heard it before, live, on CD, or on the internet. The great news is that the restoration of Longwood Garden’s pipe organ is nearly complete! All 10,010 pipes have been restored. When the restored organ debuts during Longwood's Organ Fanfare Weekend, February 4–6, the organ will sound just like it did when it was brand new in 1930.
