Friends of The Lerner presents a free Facebook Live! Kimball Organ Concert.
Join us as The Lerner Theatre will be going live on our Facebook page facebook.com/lernertheatre at 3:00 pm on Sunday, May 17.
The Kimball Organ series is graciously underwritten by The Community Foundation of Elkhart County and the Britt and Judy Murphey Family.
Grab a front row seat from your office, living room, or phone as Clark Wilson brings you the multidimensional sound of the 1924 Kimball Organ! We might not be able to gather in person, but we can bring the organ to you at home. The Lerner Theatre has created a unique online streaming experience live on The Lerner Theatre Facebook page to continue the tradition of making memories. The purpose of the livestream is to serve as a beacon to bring everyone together from the comfort of their home during this time of social distancing. “The show must go on” is a saying that is used by theatres all across the country and The Lerner Theatre intends to do just that. Clark Wilson is going to play some of his favorite musical pieces for everyone at home while chatting with you about the history of the 1924 Kimball Organ and his experiences at The Lerner Theatre. You will feel like you are on stage with him! The Lerner Theatre is the heart of Elkhart, the 1924 Kimball Organ is the heart of The Lerner Theatre and Clark Wilson will keep the arts alive at facebook.com/lernertheatre at 3:00 pm on Sunday, May 17
