Organ Historical Society Convention

The conference features an interesting program of varied instruments and exceptional performing talents. Instruments come from both Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as regions to the northwest (Collegeville, Richmond, Freeport, Luxemburg, Cold Spring) and southwest (Mankato, New Ulm, Saint Peter). There are pre- and post-convention ‘extra days’ in Wisconsin (Menomonie and Hudson) and Duluth that you’ll not want to miss. And if you stay through to the end, we’ve added an extra-extra on Saturday morning (August 12): a unique visit to the reconstituted Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota, where the famous 1932–1935 Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ of 108 ranks is being reinstalled by Foley-Baker. In addition to an audio-visual ‘history’ of this important instrument, you’ll have a chance to climb up into the new chambers, and hear this monumental ‘work in progress’ at close range.
