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. Mem­ber­ships 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.
