Jacksonville Chapter to host Pedals, Pipes and Pizza

In 2009 the Jacksonville Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will sponsor another Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza--a popular event designed to introduce young people to the organ.

This event will involve explanations and demonstrations of the pipe organ as an instrument. Students will have the opportunity to explore the organ console with the assistance of a teacher, and play a piece from their current repertoire. The primary purpose of the program is to expose them to the instrument and to expand their keyboard experiences.

Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2009 from 9am to approximately 2:30pm, beginning with the organ at Riverside Park United Methodist Church at 819 Park Street in Jacksonville’s west side. A non-refundable $7.00 fee will include all materials and pizza.
