Virtual Organ Concert
Nathaniel Licht performs on the Venango Museum's own Wurlitzer Theater Organ originally from the Latonia Theater on Oil City's South Side. Funding has been provided by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.
The Museum acquired the Latonia's 1928 Wurlitzer organ in 1988. Thousands of hours of volunteer and professional labor were required to restore the organ, which includes more than 600 separate pipes, as well as numerous sound effects and percussion instruments.
