Exciting News from Cheryl Duerr
about the next POE close to home:
The Cape Cod and the Islands Chapter of The American Guild of Organists is hosting a Pipe Organ Encounter July 15th through 20th, 2019. This is an exciting opportunity to give eighteen young people a rich experience with the organ and organists while bringing the organ forward into the musical and arts mainstream of the Cape Cod summer. Outreach to the public, especially children, is a high priority.
The faculty includes Christian Lane, James Jordan, Caroline Robinson, Janet Yieh, Clara Gerdes and Steve Young. The venues include Dennis Union Church (Casavant), West Parish, West Barnstable (Mander 2005 Mechanical), St. Mary’s, Barnstable (Wilhelm Tracker), Yarmouthport Congregational (Hook and Hastings), The Church of the Transfiguration, Orleans (Skinners/Barden), and Chatham Methodist (Noack) among others.
The students will visit two iconic organ destinations in Massachusetts. The Church of the Transfiguration complex and organ of multiple Skinners is a mandatory stop for organ lovers on the Cape. James Jordan will share his knowledge of this instrument. Methuen Memorial Music Hall will host us for their Wednesday evening concert and tour of the organ, preceded by a tour of the Andover Organ factory. You can find a little bit more information at the chapter website capeandislandsago.org.
Pipe Organ Encounters are the single most popular program AGO supports. Our colleagues agree that this program is vital to the future of our profession.
