Nov 26th Tim Wagner Plays Seasonal Music In Fairport


On November 26th from 10:30-11:30am, Tim Wagner will play seasonal selections on a Finster Baby Mechanical Organ.  What, you say?  A Finster Baby is a 20-note self-playing mechanical organ that uses punched paper music rolls encoded with notes that are read on a tracker bar. Tim became intrigued with organ music when he first heard it on the Roseland Park carousel in Canandaigua.   On the 26th, Tim will be playing an organ manufactured in Austria in 2008.  As the organ grinder, he turns the crank to power the bellows and drive the music roll.  This event is free at the Fairport Historical Museum, 18 Perrin St.
