Hey… not bad for a “beginner” -just joking! Rosa Rio makes my version of “Chopsticks” sound absolutely pathetic. Well done, young lady. So good to see and hear you at the organ.

This WURLITZER was once owned by Paul G. Sholomicki, a IATSE projectionist in St. Petersburg, Fla. and came from a theatre, however, all the pipes Paul had were from a church. I helped Paul with some of the restoration of the console. The console had been painted white, black, green and a kind of yellow. Paul had the console installed in his home and was going to install the pipes in his garage. Unfortunately, Paul was killed during the tear down of a stage show at the Van Wezel Hall of Performing Arts in Sarasota, Florida ( respectfully called THE PURPLE PALACE by all of us stage hands/projectionist, and never had the pipes installed in his house.
