Organ Series

The Longwood Organ has the distinction of being the largest residential Aeolian ever constructed and is a stunning specimen of American Art Deco organ design and engineering.

Newly restored in 2011, the organ captures an orchestral sound like no other. Hear it played by the most talented organists of today in our Ballroom.
