About Us

The Columbia River Theatre Organ Society is a non-profit, educational organization formed in 1994, for the preservation and enhancement of the theatre organ and its music. Our goals include:

  • To further public appreciation of the theatre pipe organ and its music with educational programs and concerts.
  • To encourage talented musicians to preserve the art of theatre organ playing through competitions and awards.
  • To encourage skilled organ builders and technicians to preserve the art of theatre pipe organ building through educational seminars, writing books and articles, and on-the-job training of aspiring pipe organ builders and technicians.
