Events, News and Tour Opportunities




October 27, 2018 - The Sanfilippo Foundation's Silent Film & Vampire's Kiss Gala

This is our 10th anniversary of the Foundation Gala, and we are pulling out all the (organ) stops.

We begin the evening with an hour of touring the Collection in the house and admiring the effort guests put into their fun/scary costumes. Then we'll assemble in the theater and experience one of the greatest B&W Silent films ever made, the 1922 version of Nosferatu: a Symphony of Horror, staring Max Shreck. Our master organist, Jelani Eddington has prepared an original, brilliant soundtrack with sound effects to send chills down your spine. This isn't a movie. This is an experience.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner and dancing in the Carousel Pavilion

Christmas

Join us for a 2 hour "Mighty Wurlitzer" Christmas Concert with one of the finest theater organists in the World, Dave Wickerham, along with special surprises at each concert. The Sanfilippo Home will be decorated for the Holidays and the Automatic Music Instruments will have Christmas rolls playing.

This is a great way to start your Holiday season (or a great gift to friends) and we would look forward to everyone seeing what we have done this year.
