A multi-generational organ building project

The late afternoon saw our third “build” (at St. Bede Episcopal Church in Forest Grove, Oregon) with youth taking the lead and younger kids eagerly assisting – some for the second time.   With this busy group the organ was built in record time.  My student assistants then shared some of their favorite pieces playing our sanctuary organ.

We did it!  We built a pipe a two octave, fully functional and playable miniature pipe organ at St. Bede three times in one day.  Awesome!

The Purpose of Orgelkids

The purpose of Orgelkids is to capture the interest of the next generation while they are young. 

They will always have a place in their heart for the organ. 

Our second “build” (at St. Bede Episcopal Church in Forest Grove, Oregon) was for and by children (kindergarten-6th grade).  The Parish Hall became a lively exciting place for two hours in the early afternoon as 20 kids plus their adults once again built the organ.  The kids loved answering the question, “Do we have a pipe organ yet?”  When the bellows were finally installed, and the organ got its breath, the excitement reached a peak with every little one taking a turn to play the organ and then serve as the calcant (bellows pumper).

Orgelkids strives to ensure a vibrant future for the pipe organ.

What is “Around the World in 80 Minutes”?

We just had our northwest introduction Around the World in 80 Minutes. The official world premiere is in Wooster OH at Music on Market on April 26th at 7:00 PM. For those of you in the Ohio-Indiana-Michigan area, the doors open at 6:15.We had a completely full house at the introduction.

What makes Around the World in 80 Minutes so attractive? Our slogan is : “Hear & See the Inspired Sounds of the Globe”

I can’t promise you’ll lose weight, but there are many other personal benefits you’ll enjoy.

Around the World in 80 Minutes – a fast-moving concert that features unique global organ repertoire by native composers, and is as exciting as it sounds.
A great journey around the world that transcends the boundaries of countries, religions, nationalities, time periods and styles. Bringing people together through music, visuals and the grandeur of the organ.  Celebrating the fascinating diversity of the music of the world.

Musically

Performed with Jeannine’s brilliant playing and accompanied by creative registrations unveiling sounds from the organ you may not previously have not made visible their voice.

Visuals

Visually, there are animations of animals, dancers, music, vids of Jeannine in a fly-suit?, travel, inside of a cathedral,  world recognized landmarks, live cameras on Jeannine’s hands (left and right), feet (left and right), and as narrator.

Stories

Since Jeannine visited all of the six continents and most of the countries represented there are great anecdotes about her visits

Travel

From a travel stand-point you’ll cross over some of the highest mountains, and driest deserts. Visit sheep in New Zealand, parrots in the Brazilian rainforest and 4th of July in the USA.

Humor

I can’t seem to function without humor, so there is a good sprinkling of that too. Who’s in the Queens carriage?

80 Minutes

Yes, This all happens in 80 minutes. As we quote one Southwest flight attendant: ‘Fasten your seats belts because we are going to go REALLY fast.”
