    Longwood Gardens organ update

    The LG organ will be getting an update, it was announced today.
    "We have noted an increasing interest in water parks and water-related activities," said Hames Jers, CEO of Longwood."Meanwhile, interest in horticulture has declined, along with attendance at Longwood Gardens. We felt it necessary to change with the times."
    He went on to state that the famous ballroom would be changed to the "world's largest indoor swimming pool." "We were assured that the organ could be made waterproof, so we are going to do this. In fact just this morning I signed a contract with 'Joe's waterproofing and catering' (the low bidder per regulations) to completely waterproof the organ console, mechanisms, and all pipework. They assure me of a perfect job. It's just a shame to do this right after a multimillion $ rebuilding of the organ, but these things happen. And Joe's is only charging us $159.99"
    Longwood will now be able to boast of the world's only underwater pipe organ, a fact they will no doubt aggressively publicize.
    "There's only one downside," said Jers. "All the staff organists immediately tendered their resignations, and we've had trouble replacing them. It seems that many organists are worry-warts, and they're concerned about getting electrical shocks from the console. How ridiculous!" He went on to say that the minimum-wage staff organist job will be advertised nationally.
    Work is to be completed by April 31, 2020.
    Stay tuned for updates as work progresses...

    As long as Joe is using Flex Seal, everything should be fine.

      I've just been informed- applications for the (minimum wage) staff organist job are now being accepted. There will be an organ playing test, and a swimming test. Must score 100% on both.

      They should put some soap in the water, then this organ could be the biggest bubble blowing machine the world has ever seen.

      There are such things called "Water Organs" with fountains dancing to the music. Seems to me LG is perfectly positioned for this!
      Maybe they could fund it from their appliance business...... ducking..
      Can't play an note but love all things "organ" Responsible for 2/10 Wurli pipe organ, Allen 3160(wife's), Allen LL324, Allen GW319EX, ADC4600, many others. E-organ shop to fund free organ lessons for kids.

        I've got that sinking feeling–whooah that sinking feeling! I've got that sinking feeling, now it's gone, gone, gone.
        Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
        • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
        • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
        • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 4 Pianos
