Liberace at his home organ.

The staff in our Archives and Library have been hard at work processing an important collection of theatre organ photographs. The collection includes photographs of significant performers, organs, and meetings of theatre organ associations. The above photograph is of Liberace at his home organ.

The collection will be fully processed and available to the public in fall of 2017.

Ending the Academic Year on a High Note

Last AOI Studio Class of 2016/2017 Academic Year

As we finished up the last days of the 2016-2017 Academic Year, it was such a pleasure to have Alumna Dr. Dorothy Young Riess with us for our last studio class. Her Alumni Concert program reminded us how lucky we are to have her in the AOI family – wonderful music and wonderful memories for everyone involved!
