Notes

  • The console sat to the right of the stage in the old auditorium. The Los Angeles Times reported that Redondo’s new auditorium was to be the center of biweekly social functions “for the betterment of the community.” The pipe organ and a film projector were to “bring the people of the district closer together and closer in touch with the school,” school board clerk G.S. Thatcher told the Times.

  • After the old auditorium was torn down in the early 1970s, students and residents held fundraisers to pay for the organ to be installed in the new auditorium. But instead of the nearly 800 tapered pipes towering over the stage, they were hidden in chambers on either side, accessible only by a catwalk. The grand console was also out of sight, in the orchestra pit. (Steven E. Lawson. April 8, 2018)
