Going Quiet…

I will be on hiatus until June 22 after my nuptials this weekend which will take place at the Methuen Memorial Music Hall with musical accompaniment on this lovely instrument, The Great Organ.  This is the old pipe organ of the Boston Symphony from before Symphony Hall was opened in 1900. The orchestra and organ resided in the old Boston Music Hall.  After they left, the organ went into storage until Edward Searles built a new hall in 1909 in Methuen Massachusetts specifically just to house the organ (bottom photo).  This is a great American treasure if you ever have a chance to go see it, don't miss it.
