LOVE FOR THE ORGAN AND ITS MUSIC
That's the only requirement for membership in this society
of friends of the organ. We are an international organization that seeks
members from all levels of interest in the organ. Whether you simply listen
enthusiastically or you play, build, or study the organ as an avocation
or profession, the Organ Historical Society invites you to join.The Society
promotes a widespread musical and historical interest in American organbuilding
through collection, preservation, and publication of historical information,
and through recordings and public concerts. As a member you will:
Receive the Society's quarterly magazine The Tracker.
Receive the Society's annual Organ Handbook
Meet others who share your love for the organ and its music.
Receive invitations to attend the annual National Conventions of the Society,
which are held in June, July or August in places where there are interesting
and historic organs.
Receive catalogs of hundreds of organ and choral recordings. Organ publications
and music with some special prices for members.
Through your membership, help preserve and document the American organ
building heritage and support the OHS American Organ Archives, the largest
organ research college in the world.
From a modest beginning in 1956, the Society has grown
steadily in membership and is now an international group of music lovers,
musicians, organ builders, historians, and scholars. This growth, which
has spread to other countries, is evidence that a significant step forward
in musical culture and historical scholarship has been fostered since
the Society's founding.
The New Orleans Chapter of the Organ Historical Society has the awesome
task of looking after the many historic organs in the Crescent City. Rich
in religious heritage, New Orleans and the surrounding area is home to
many fine historic instruments. Over the last twenty years, the chapter
has been a driving force in keeping these priceless treasures playing,
and making sure that their owners are aware of the significance they hold
in the history of our churches and institutions of worship. Our city has
been the site of both a major national convention and a winter Odyssey.
