Event description

Description

The Greater Bridgeport Chapter of the American Guild of Organists invites young people interested in learning to a fun day of exploring the “King of Instruments,” the pipe organ, on Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 11am-2pm. The event takes place at St. Mary’s Church, Milford, CT. We will have pizza lunch together. There is no cost to attend, but students need to sign up by January 31st

For centuries, the organ was the largest and most complicated machinery invented by humans. The instrument still fascinates students and music lovers of all ages with its thousands of pipes and rich pallet of musical colors. Students will get to listen to demonstrations of the majestic pipe organ at St. Mary’s Church, Milford. They will also receive individual time, if desired, to explore the instrument. Students can bring pieces they have studied on the piano, especially music by Bach, and can try those out on the organ. Expert organist, Frank Zilinyi from the Greater Bridgeport American Guild of Organists will demonstrate how organs work and how they are played. The day will include a free pizza lunch! Piano teachers in Fairfield County and the greater Milford CT Area are encouraged to let their students know about this opportunity to learn about another family of keyboard instruments!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All are welcome. Participants under the age of 16 require their guardian/adult to attend /stay on premises.

What can I bring into the event?

Curiosity ! And for any current music students, bring a current piece they can play (anything by Bach is especially conducive, however, any music at all will work).

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
