Nashville Flooding Affects Concert Hall Organ

Our friends in the Nashville AGO Chapter have affected by the severe storms and flooding in the area. The Chapter meeting scheduled for May 3 was cancelled. Many people are without power and have had to evacuate their homes. Some churches have experienced minor flooding.

The organ console is stored on that level, and it was ruined, along with two Steinway concert grand pianos. Read the full news article here.
