Host a Convention

Are you proud of the his­toric pipe organs in your area? Would you like to share them with the rest of the OHS mem­ber­ship?

The Organ His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety is seek­ing pro­pos­als to host con­ven­tions in 2020 and 2021, and we would love to come vis­it! If you’ve ever want­ed to show off the organs in your area to the rest of the OHS mem­ber­ship, this is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty. As a first step, please con­tact the CEO, Jim Weaver, at emccall@​organhistoricalsociety.​org to start a con­ver­sa­tion about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of host­ing. After this, an ini­tial pro­pos­al will need to have a pre­lim­i­nary list of organs to vis­it and a pre­lim­i­nary itin­er­ary, as well as a list of peo­ple who would be will­ing to serve on a con­ven­tion committee. For com­plete infor­ma­tion on host­ing a con­ven­tion, please down­load the con­ven­tion guide­lines here.

The Tracker

OHS pub­lish­es its jour­nal four times a year. The Track­er includes news and arti­cles about the organ and its his­to­ry, organ­builders, exem­plary organs, region­al sur­veys of instru­ments, and the music played on the organ. The empha­sis is on Amer­i­can organ top­ics of the 18th, 19th, and 20th cen­turies, and there are occa­sion­al arti­cles on Euro­pean top­ics. Most issues run 48 pages with many illus­tra­tions and pho­tographs.

Dear Friend of the Organ –
A New Opportunity

Think about the plea­sure you will receive in offer­ing an OHS mem­ber­ship to a friend or rel­a­tive. You can share your love of the pipe organ and intro­duce some­one else to the good works of the Soci­ety in edu­cat­ing, pre­serv­ing and chron­i­cling our rich organ her­itage and cul­ture. Mem­ber­ship lev­els [$70 – Reg­u­lar, Insti­tu­tion /​ Busi­ness, $60 – Senior, and only $25 for Stu­dents — elec­tron­ic deliv­ery only] are won­der­ful­ly afford­able and make splen­did gifts. The recip­i­ent will receive a sub­scrip­tion to our quar­ter­ly mag­a­zine, The Track­er, a spe­cial gift and all the ben­e­fits of mem­ber­ship, includ­ing mem­bers’ prices on many items in the OHS Cat­a­log.

The OHS Mission Statement

The Organ His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety cel­ebrates, pre­serves, and stud­ies the pipe organ in Amer­i­ca in all its his­toric styles, through re­search, edu­ca­tion, ad­vocacy, and music.
