The Mission of BTOS’s Non-profit Corporation is to preserve, maintain and present the (publically owned) Theatre Organs in Broome County. We accomplish this through YOUR Donations and Attendance support ! We need to raise $250,000 over the next five years to accomplish the repairs and updating of the 1922 Robert-Morton “Unit Orchestra” and close to an additional amount to help re-build the Link III/19 organ at the Roberson Museum and Science Center.
