The Meyer breaks out the organ
The Mighty Wurlitzer organ was a centerpiece of the original Fox Theatre, now the Meyer Theatre, when it opened on Valentine's Day in 1930. It was custom-built for the Fox to be used for silent films, vaudeville shows, amateur nights, and intermission sing-alongs.
After moving around the state and extensive restoration, the organ's back and mighty again.
On Feb. 25, organist Tom McNeely and vocalist Carol Jegen will perform with the organ at the Meyer before Frank Rippl takes over to accompany the Buster Keaton silent film, "Cops."
The show is free and open to the public and starts at 7 p.m.
Symphony leads off with overture collection
Amid their 99th season, the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra and Director Donato Cabrera explore an array of overtures including Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and a new overture by composer Mark Grey called "Leviathan" for a show titled, "Overture!" March 9 at the Weidner Center.
Cabrera said the goal of the interactive concert is to go through what it takes to be an overture, thus he will explain the piece and the GBSO will play demos to illustrate common characteristics of overtures.
Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $13-$44 for adults, $10 for youth, and $5 off for seniors.
