Organ Socials

Land of Lincoln Theatre Organ Society Saturday Organ Socials

LOLTOS Saturday morning Organ Socials at the Coronado Theatre start promptly at 10:00 AM with coffee being served at 9:30 AM. 

These programs feature lively and listenable popular music, much of it from the 1920s, '30s and '40s, when the theatre pipe organ RULED. We hope that many people throughout the Rockford area and beyond will come and hear a pipe organ replete with a large collection of real percussion instruments and special effects, much different from a concert of church organ. 

No cost and no reservations necessary (Donations welcome).
