Madison ACM AGO Encounters the Overture Center Barton Organ

Today (May 20 208) members of the Madison Association of Church Musicians and American Guild of Organists Madison enjoyed a tour of the Madison Overture Center Capitol Theatre’s Barton Organ. Jaret Schroeder, curator of the organ, extensively demonstrated the numerous tab stops and special sounds. Thank you, Jaret!
