The OHS 2018 Cal­en­dar cel­e­brates the 63rd Annu­al Con­ven­tion of the OHS – Rochester, New York, July 29 to August 3, 2018 – show­cas­ing one of the most diverse col­lec­tions of Amer­i­can and Euro­pean organs from the 18th to 21st cen­turies. This cal­en­dar is filled with gor­geous pho­tographs by Len Lev­asseur, rang­ing from the Baroque splen­dor of both the Craig­head-Saun­ders Organ” – a process-recon­struc­tion of a 1776 A.G. Cas­pari­ni organ – and an orig­i­nal 18th-cen­tu­ry Ital­ian Baroque organ to the sub­dued poly­chroming of two late 19th-cen­tu­ry Hooks and an ear­ly 20th-cen­tu­ry New York builder C.E. Morey. Flip ahead to find the mas­sive carved case of the 2008 Fritts at Sacred Heart Cathe­dral, ref­er­enc­ing Dutch Renais­sance mod­els; the extrav­a­gant con­ser­va­to­ry of the George East­man Muse­um and its sig­na­ture 4‑manual Aeo­lian con­sole; and mod­ernist designs of the Organ Reform Move­ment rep­re­sent­ed by Holtkamp and Schlick­er. Com­pare those with the ele­gant, neo-his­tor­i­cal cas­es from C.B. Fisk and Tay­lor & Boody, as well as the Apol­lon­ian restraint and grace of Hope-Jones Organ Co., Op. 2 at First Uni­ver­sal­ist Church. Nathan Laube’s wel­com­ing arti­cle pro­vides a snap­shot of the rich offer­ings – organolog­i­cal and oth­er­wise – that you can expect to dis­cov­er in Rochester and its sur­round­ings. The Cal­en­dar high­lights U.S. Hol­i­days and the major dates of the Chris­t­ian and Jew­ish year.
