UPDATE: Many members will recall good times at the George
Pasquaye residence in Wallington, N.J. George, a
professional organ technician with Peragallo Organ
Company in Paterson, had a beautifully restored Wurlitzer
Theatre Pipe Organ in his home. Following George’s death,
the New York Theatre Organ Society acquired the instrument
for a public venue on Long Island. The deal fell
through, as did one for another Long Island venue. NYTOS
finally gave the instrument to the famous Eastman School of
Music in Rochester, N.Y. to be restored and used in one of
their practice rooms. Tom Stehle of NYTOS, reports that
unfortunately, the Pasquaye organ did not end up at Eastman
either. After several years of dormancy in a storage
container out on Long Island, NYTOS paid to have it
shipped to Rochester. The group there determined that the
organ had deteriorated beyond their ability to restore it. They
gave it to one of their members who is working on it with
the hope of installing it in his home.
