February 17 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM | University of St. Thomas and the Church of Saint Mark
Pipe Organ Discovery Day provides students in grades 3 through 12 with an opportunity to learn more about the pipe organ and expand their knowledge with hands-on experience on a variety of instruments. The event is free to participants and family members are welcome. Prior keyboard experience is needed to play the instruments; all are welcome to come and learn. A pizza lunch is provided courtesy of the Twin Cities Chapter of the AGO.
Students will be able to play the Gabriel Kney organ at the University of St. Thomas and the Hendrickson organ at The Church of Saint Mark, as well as “mini opus,” the chapter’s demonstration organ.
In addition to the hands-on playing opportunities, students will also participate in a short class about how pipe organs are built in the morning session.

option #1, with full participation at both venues, starts at 9:00 a.m. and includes morning session, pizza lunch, and afternoon session, ending at 3:00 p.m.;
option #2, morning session only at the University of St. Thomas, starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m.;
