With the goal of returning the Longwood Organ to its 1930 splendor, a team of experts began a seven-year restoration process in 2004. They completely rewired, repainted, re-leathered and refurbished virtually every element of the Longwood Organ.
Today, the remarkable, fully restored Longwood Organ is a highlight of the extraordinary performing arts programming.
This year we host the inaugural Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition where 10 competitors from around the world compete for the Pierre S. du Pont $40,000 First Prize.
