The pipe organ has been called the “King of Instruments.” The sounds of the pipe organ have inspired worshippers for centuries. Great composers have written countless works for the instrument. Pipe organs have been installed in some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls and theaters. The American Guild of Organists is passionate about the pipe organ and we want to share our love with a new generation.
Join us on Sunday, March 25, 2012 at St. Mary’s Church of the Immaculate Conception in Wilkes-Barre from 2:00 – 4:00 PM for Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza. Participants will receive a behind the scenes tour of the instrument in addition to a chance to play it themselves (and eat some pizza!). All are welcome to attend. Students currently studying the piano are encouraged to bring a piece to play on the organ.
Presenters for the event are Michael Sowa and Raphael Micca, local organists with backgrounds in music education and church music. Mark Ignatovich, Organist and Director of Music at St. Mary’s, is the host.
