RTOS Open Console

The concept of “open console” is one that allows RTOS members who are learning to play the theatre organ to try their hand at a theatre pipe organ. See the Open Console event schedule below. Most often, these are held at the Rochester Museum and Science Center’s Eisenhart Auditorium.
