Organ Crawl in Olympia

The Olympia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists cordially invites you to join us for an organ crawl to Steamboat Island Road and Shelton to hear four interesting, and in their own way, historic organs on Saturday, 10 June.

We will begin at 10:00 at St. Christopher’s church, a paired Lutheran and Episcopal parish to hear their 1891 Pilcher which, it is said, began life at St. John’s Episcopal church in Olympia. We will then hear Paul Fritts’ Opus One which was built as Fritts Richards at Shelton United Methodist at 11:00. At noon, St. David Episcopal in Shelton will host us for lunch and then we will hear, there, Paul’s Opus 2a, also a Fritts Richards. We will conclude the day at Faith Lutheran in Shelton to hear a 1907 Pilcher moved by Randall McCarthy and friends. Questions? Addresses? Call Dennis Northway at 564 999 8333. See you there!
