"Pipe Dream"

A story of the restoration of the Lerner Theatre's 1924 Kimball pipe organ

The 1924 Kimball pipe organ located in Elkhart, Indiana’s Lerner Theatre is one of only three Kimball pipe organs currently installed in its original location. The organ was restored following the 2011 renovation of the theatre which opened on Thanksgiving Day, 1924.

Once again playing beautiful music the restored organ is a jewel. In this video you will not only see and hear the organ being played but you will follow the restoration process from an unplayable, water damaged organ to the beautiful instrument that it is today. You will meet the people who were involved in the restoration process and peek over their shoulders as they resurrect the organ using their artistic abilities.

This story is one that you will find surprisingly compelling!
