The future of theatre organs will rely on exposure to the general public by  playing wonderful instruments like this one in amazing places like the beautiful, 5-story atrium at 590 Madison Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets in the heart of midtown Manhattan.—Nelson Page

“Music is the heartbeat of life.—Bob Shepherd

Colorful and exciting master organists like David Hegarty and Jeff Barker made new fans for the organ upon first listening in the wonderful acoustics of this remarkable atrium, with its high glass walls, 30-foot tall bamboo trees, attractive cafe, and tables with chairs. —Claire Arnold
