Every year the SNCAGO sponsors area youth's enrollment in Pipe Organ Encounters, which are designed to give aspiring organists and pianists opportunities to learn about the pipe organ during a week-long intensive camp. Many of those students will be featured in a recital this Sunday at the Guardian Angel Cathedral (302 Cathedral Way, Las Vegas, NV 89109) beginning at 3:30 PM.
"This is an exciting for our community's young organists to play on one of the biggest instruments in the state and demonstrate what they have learned," said SNCAGO Sub-Dean, cathedral organist, and CCSD music teacher William Freeman.
Each POE student will perform repertoire including hymns and organ literature from Bach and other organ composers. Students are the in studios of Laurie Swain (chapter member), Shireen Beaudry (chapter member), and Elaine Hardy.
Pipe Organ Experiences are funded through the Raymond J. Barnes Scholarship. If you would like to give area youth an opportunity to experience and explore the pipe organ, please contribute, HERE.
