Used to soundtrack movies during the silent film era of the 1920s, the Kimball Theatre Organ is one of the most popular items in the National Music Centre collection. For NMC Learning at Home, Evan the Educator demonstrates how to play the instrument and shows off some of its quirky features and many accoutrements. Then he tries to learn and orchestrate a new tune. See how he does!
