This season the museum is sponsoring two re-homing events: September 24 and October 8 from 2 to 4p.m. at the museum, 108 Birge Street, rear.
Looking for parts to repair your reed organ? Wishing you had a parlor organ for your parlor? In search of well-aged pieces of black walnut?
You’re invited to Estey Organ Museum’s fifth annual re-homing season, this year in partnership with the Brattleboro Historical Society.
Many of the instruments could be rehabilitated by cleaning and bellows repair but others are musically unusable. Although purists may decry the idea of turning a musical instrument into a desk or liquor cabinet, that is still a way to respect and enjoy the fine woodworking and craftsmanship of Estey workers of long ago.
These events, which began in the fall of 2015, are a way for EOM and BHS to get their duplicate and non-museum quality organs into the hands of those who will use and enjoy them. This is consistent with part two of the Estey Museum’s mission – “to promote the continued use and enjoyment of Estey organs.”
