The 2012 ATOS Annual Convention took place in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. For many years, Southern California has been a host to thousands of concerts on some of the finest instruments in the country. The 2012 convention brought together a stellar gathering of friends, musicians, and enthusiasts from around the globe, who all enjoyed this spectacular musical event. Three local ATOS chapters worked together to make the convention a success: the Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society, Orange County Theatre Organ Society, and the Theatre Organ Society Of San Diego.

This 2-CD commemorative album features ten world-class organists who performed during the week: Jelani Eddington, Chris Gorsuch, Mark Herman, Walt Strony, Dave Wickerham, Jerry Nagano, Chris Elliott, Tony Fenelon, Lyn Larsen, and Simon Gledhill.

This album is a great souvenir for those who attended the convention, as well as a great overview of an exciting event for those who were unable to enjoy the convention in person.
