Jonathan Ortloff, who is supervising the installation of the 1924 Wurlitzer organ at the Strand Theater in Plattsburgh, in one of the many pipe chambers throughout the theater. Ortloff estimates that between 4,000 and 5,000 hours of work, both volunteer and paid, have gone into restoring the organ. The dedication of the organ will be Oct. 29th at 7:30 p.m.. After the ceremony there will be a short concert, then the 1925 silent film Phantom of the Opera will play, accompanied by Ortloff on organ.
