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.

A Winter Warm-Up

January 19, 2011
This year we decided to do something a little different in the Conservatory when planning the 2011 Orchid Extravaganza. It still runs the traditional timeframe with opening day being January 22 and ending after the International Orchid Show & Sale, which is March 26–28, 2011. But, rather than having traditional purple, white and pink orchids all over, why not jazz it up with some warm colors as well?
