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.
