Theater organ concert at Donald Trump's High School   2008-01-21

 

This activity was a recent visit to the New York Military Academy, a military prep/high school, of which, Donald Trump was a graduate.  The school is located in Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY, slightly north of West Point and Bear Mountain.

 

In the auditorium is an authentic and operative 1927 theater organ.    The reason for the unusual location of such an instrument (typically found at, well, movie theaters) was that cadets at the time were not permitted to leave the campus, so the auditorium was used for both religious services AND entertainment, including the playing of the organ during silent films, just like many conventional movie theaters were doing at the time.
