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).

Let’s build an organ

ORGELKIDS REVIEW
Orgelkids makes the King of Instruments accessible.  What is accessible is then knowable and lovable.

On Tuesday, November 20th, the Parish Hall of St. Bede was filled with people of every age, discovering the amazing intricacies of a tracker pipe organ – not by looking at one or attending a lecture or reading about a tracker pipe organ – but by building an exquisite miniature playable pipe organ.

Orgelkids partsWe took these parts – over 100 of them – and built a pipe organ.

Not one time – but three times that day!

Orgelkids entices the public to engage with the King of Instruments by empowering them to build a working pipe organ.

Orgelkids day - multigenerational at the organ

 

Our first “build” was for and by adults.  22 adults from the Portland metro area, South Beach and Pacific City, Oregon and as far away as Salina, Kansas joined David and me, my student helpers St. Bede assistant Linda Jackson, to build the organ.  Everyone was captivated and enthralled with the process and the sound of this amazing pipe organ.

Let the build begin!

Why do we want to share an organ and multimedia concert with your audience?

Okay, sounds reasonable. Why would we want to share one of our organ and multimedia concerts with your audience?

  • Our concerts appeal to your complete audience with “Stories to Move you – Music to Thrill you – Visuals to Captivate you”
  • The music and narration provide the story; the visuals are the path on which the story travels.
  • We speak to the auditory person with some of the most stunning music written for the organ and captivating stories
  • We allow the visually oriented person see the background images that help create the story and also see the work the organist does
  • We engage the kinesthetic participant with the rhythm of the music, the pulse and emotion of the story, and the moving animations
  • It is an enriching experience to attend one of our concerts – Bach and SonsFrom Sea to Shining Sea or Around the World in 80 Minutes___________________________________________________________________________
