Posted by wlpo on October 19, 2014

LP’s historic 1929 pipe organ will play this Saturday night accompanied by a classic 1925 silent film. Matt Baker handles public information and fundraising at LaSalle Peru High School.  Jeff Weiler, a  restoration expert, will demonstrate the refurbished organ and provide some history about the Matthiessen auditorium instrument.

LP Superintendent Steve Wrobleski will talk about additional organ restoration efforts followed by the silent film, “The Phantom of the Opera”. Weiler will provide organ accompanyment while the film is shown. The event is free this Saturday night and refreshments will be served.
