The Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society (LATOS) was founded in 1961, and owns pipe organs at the Wilshire Ebell, South Pasadena High School, and Pasadena City College. LATOS members can play these organs several times a year. LATOS also has access to many other instruments for its events and concerts in the southern California area. In addition to its Mission Statement, its key focus today is membership growth, expansion of member activities, promoting the theatre pipe organ to local youth and educating our youth about these rare and magnificent instruments, and encouraging active involvement in the organization.
THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO JOIN LATOS and enjoy wonderful entertainment, memorable events and activities, and more while supporting the preservation of an increasingly rare and unique instrument and art form, the theatre pipe organ! Membership benefits include (to name a few):
- A subscription to the LATOS full-color monthly news publication, The Organ Log.
- Discounted tickets for most LATOS events and concerts.
- Special access to theatre pipe organs that are owned by LATOS. This includes open console events where members get to experience the excitement of sitting at and playing a theatre pipe organ (a sort of jam session). Private visits can also set up (by special arrangement).
- and more!
If you are a currently a member of the national organization, the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS), you can join LATOS as a voting Member. Voting relates to election of LATOS board members, and other decisions that would affect the organization’s bylaws, etc.
If you are not a member of ATOS, you can still join LATOS as a Friend Of the Theatre Organ (FOTO). With exception of voting, you will have the same benefits and privileges as a regular member.
