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, April 21, 2013 at St. Matthew’s United Evangelical Lutheran Church, corner of Jefferson Avenue and Vine Street, Scranton, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM for our second 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.
