The Tacoma chapter is sponsoring an outreach program to introduce young people to the grandest and most complex of all musical instruments, the pipe organ!
The afternoon starts at the Parkland shop of renowned organ builder Paul Fritts for a pizza lunch kick-off at 12:30 p.m. Lunch is followed by a show and tell of the organ-building process, including pipes, case, and keyboards, from 1-2 p.m, and featuring an organ nearing completion that is destined for First Presbyterian Church in Bloomington, Indiana this fall. Finally, a move to nearby Pacific Lutheran University at 2:15 p.m. to see, hear, and even try the magnificent 1998 Fritts organ in Lagerquist Hall.
This event is free and open to the public, ages 8 through high school, but requires free registration subject to terms and conditions.
Details, terms and conditions, and registration are here. The registration will be available from June 1 through July 31.
