Open Console: Saturday, 15 September 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 side door on the Sola Street side of the theatre nearest the rear of the building.  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 Sola street (a single door), which has a single stair step going up.  This door may be opened by the stage crew for their use.  It leads to the backstage, and we are not 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.

    The Arlington Theatre is located at 1317 State Street between Victoria and Sola streets

    Our 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.
