Organ 101


May 20
7:30 pm - 8:15 pm

Join Director of Music Karl Robson, and his partner Adam Detzner, Director of Music at Christ Church (Episcopal), Columbia, for a series of Zoom lectures about the pipe organ on Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:15 pm, beginning April 22. We’ll start with an “Organ 101” crash course, defining some key terms and using the St. John’s nave organ to demonstrate some basic concepts. We’ll continue with a brief historical survey of the organ from its earliest beginnings (in the Roman empire – who knew?) to the present day, and listen to recordings of important extant instruments along the way. Karl and Adam will also take questions about the organ and its music. “See” you there!
