The Chevalier Theatre Organ Society is pleased to present the first public performance of the 1922 Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ that is being installed at the City of Medford’s Chevalier Theatre. The free debut concert will be held in conjunction with the Organ Society’s 2022 Annual Meeting, starting at 2:30 p.m. on the Chevalier stage. After a very brief business meeting, a slide presentation will tell the story the Chevalier Wurlitzer, setting the stage for the concert with renowned organist Peter Krasinski starting promptly at 3 p.m.
The concert program will demonstrate the versatility of the Wurlitzer Theatre Organ, which will be about 70% restored. He’ll play an inclusive array of holiday season music along with a classical music segment and a sing-along. The centerpiece will feature longtime Organ Society and Friends of Chevalier board member and donor May Marquebreuck reciting the classic Clement Clarke Moore poem “The Night Before Christmas” while Peter accompanies on the organ. All are cordially invited to attend this free event.
