We’ll discuss and demonstrate design, construction, and mechanism, and dispel some of the myths and misconceptions of scaling and voicing, using Ortloff Opus 2, which will be set up on the shop floor, as a guide.”

Peter will improvise live organ music to accompany the film Grandma’s Boy, starring Harold Lloyd (1922). This film was highly influential, helping to pioneer feature-length comedies which combined gags with character development. This film was also an immensely popular, commercially successful film in its time. Peter Krasinski is considered to be the finest “silent movie” organist currently playing!
