The organ in the Lounge on the third floor was an Aeolian Company Style 151 that would normally be played by a three manual console. For this installation the console was omitted but the organ was playable with Duo-Art Records from a Concertola Cabinet permitting the playing of a concert of ten selections. By means of electrical amplification the tone of this division when played with Duo-Art Records can be heard in the Auditorium as an Echo or Antiphonal Organ.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on December 03, 2019.
