The “Acoustically Perfect” Auditorium

audbob

Once the largest and most magnificent between New York and Chicago, this 2,800 seat auditorium has had a wide variety of entertainers grace its stage. From national stars like Jerry Seinfield to local treasures like the Pittsburgh Symphony, the New Castle Consistory Men’s Choir, and the New Castle Regional Ballet, the Scottish Rite Cathedral has something to offer everyone. The auditorium also boasts a Mueller 4-Console Organ, which has over 5,000 pipes to create its wonderful sounds. It is connected to a player piano, which is played from the organ keyboard. There are only two of these in existence.
