In February 2009, the Eastman-Rochester Organ Initiative (EROI), the Rochester Chapter of the American Guild of Organists (AGO), the Rochester Theatre Organ Society (RTOS) and public radio station WXXI-91.5 FM collaborated in a three-day organ orgy with Pipedreams host Michael Barone. Capacity audiences attended events at the Rochester Auditorium Theatre, with its 1928 Mighty Wurlitzer, and at Sacred Heart Cathedral and Christ Church Episcopal, featuring two recent installations (one by Paul Fritts and the other a collaborative effort, the GoART Casparini Project organ, both completed in 2008). A prior broadcast (#0942) was derived primarily from the Friday and Saturday night church concerts, and though we return to those venues here, briefly, our main focus is on theatre organ music from the Rochester Auditorium. Additional performances from that venue, by David Peckham and Jonathan Ortloff with Allan Ward, are available in CD format, too.
