Orgelkids at Peace Village, Forest Grove, Oregon

We started with 124 individual pieces!

And soon, the participants of the Forest Grove, Oregon Peace Village had constructed a playable miniature pipe organ. The project was facilitated by Dr. Jeannine Jordan, organist and David Jordan.

16 middle school and high school students (with a few adult observers) had a grand time constructing the case, the wind system, the keyboard, the tracker mechanism, and the pipe layout for this magnificent pipe organ.

Following “the build,” Sarah Gheorghita, organ student of Dr. Jeannine Jordan, performed several pieces on the church’s pipe organ. Students were also taken on an organ crawl through the chambers of the large pipe organ.

Peace Village teaches skills in conflict resolution, empathy, creating inner-peace, connecting with the natural world and collaborative leadership through engagement in fun daily activities. The program centers its activities on music, art, nature, mindfulness, non-competitive play and the exploration of media.

Special activities that will be part of this year’s Peace Village camp include a field trip to Stub Stewart State Park, a cooperative activity in building and playing an organ, harvesting, preparing, cooking and eating food with Nana Cardoon; and a service project for West Tuality Habitat for Humanity.

The Peace Village program focuses on four pillars designed to create better community-minded youth: mindfulness (a focus on self), media literacy (focusing on how media impacts us), connection to nature (a focus on how to live in harmony with nature) and conflict resolution (a focus on how to address and resolve conflict).

What is From Sea to Shining Sea?

From Sea to Shining Sea is the the perilous story of the early expansion of the organ in the colonies into the US as told by an actual Mayflower descendant. It is focused on unique American music and at the same time is more patriotic in nature. It has content unique to our concert, since it comes from concert organist Dr. Jordan’s thesis research.

All three of our organ and multimedia concerts are performed in a rich multimedia format, with five cameras, computers and lighting, which makes the concert even more captivating and engaging for the audience. They become one with the story and they love it.

Re-Imagining Expands our Perceptions

“Creativity (Re-Imagining) expands our perceptions and along with
expanded perceptions come new ways of problem solving — from making an exquisite meal when you don’t know how to cook to painting an extraordinary landscape when you are living in a freezing attic and can’t
afford a full box of paints.” Betsy Roe, Associate Curator and Museum
Educator of the Sabatini Gallery, Topeka, Kansas.Being creative helps you become a better problem solver in all areas of your life and work. 
Re-Imagining helps you see things differently and better deal with
uncertainty. Studies show that creative people are better able to live with uncertainty because they can adapt their thinking to allow for the flow
of the unknown.Recognize that you have creativity. Re-Imagine what you might do next to see, feel, and understand the opportunities in front of
you. And, no, the sky is not falling.
