Console: Saturday, 11 August 2018. 9-11 AM.
Open consoles are open to the public. Bring
your friends. Tell your neighbors. Come play the
organ, or just listen. Chamber tours will be conducted.
Enter the Arlington
Theatre through the
door on the Sola Street side of the theatre nearest the rear of the
The door will be propped open. This double door has stairs
leading down to it.
This door may be inaccessible due to
construction. If so, enter by the side door on the other side of
the theatre, near the Public Market. It will be propped open.
Please do not enter by
the theatre back door near
street (a single
door), which has a single stair step going up. This door may be
stage crew for their use. It leads to the backstage, and we are
permitted in that area.
We had a problem with a recent open console, which
was greatly attended (thanks to a wonderful Santa Barbara News Press
article). Unfortunately, guests wandered outside the area of the
organ console, principally backstage, the dressing rooms, the lobby,
and the balcony. This intrusion strained our relationship with
the theatre. If you attend the open console, please stay near the
area of the organ console and theatre seats, or accompany an SBTOS
member for a chamber tour.
Arlington Theatre is located at 1317 State Street between Victoria and
newest CD: Dancing in the Dark, as well as "I Remember
You" and our Christmas CD
"Christmas at the Arlington" with Scott Foppiano will be available then
also. We can also play a selection or two on the organ.
