AGO Pipe Organ Encounters
« on: June 28, 2010, 11:05:32 PM »
The American Guild for Organists sponsors these events all over the USA, in the summer months,
so as to allow young musicians the chance to learn about, hear and play the pipe organ.

A few news articles and blogs related to these events follow...

The objective is to reach human immortality—that is, to create things which are necessary to mankind, necessary to the purpose of the existence of mankind, and which have become the fruit that drives the creation of a higher state of mankind than ever existed before."

Dear Eric

Once again, thanks for bringing a heads-up on this news from across the water.

Such stories show that the organ can really appeal to younger people without having a performance artist turning the instrument into a circus act.

Unfortunately people who comment about how circus act promotion of the organ might not be the most musical nor appropriate way of bringing the organ into a higher profile nor how six figure sums are proposed to be spent putting a virtual circus show on the road tend to get drummed out of town elsewhere by a bandwagon of "friends" and one is accused of ignoring young talent.

But your newspaper articles show where young talent and musicianship is at its best.

Best wishes
