OHS Video Productions
Welcome to the first two episodes of OHSLA TODAY, an insider’s look at the vast collection of the Organ Historical Society. Hosted by our Chief Librarian and Archivist, Bynum Petty, each month will feature rare gems and items of great interest to the members of the OHS and organ enthusiasts alike. Share with your friends and be sure to tune in each month!
LIVE FROM STONELEIGH
is a video recital series featuring the grand Aeolian-Skinner Opus 878 housed at the headquarters of the OHS. Organists from around the Philadelphia area come to the Stoneleigh to record some of their favorite repertoire for residence organs and beyond. You will want to visit the OHS website in the first and second half of each month to listen and enjoy these charming recitals.
KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLORS
will feature ten instruments from across the country, played by organists who know the instrument well and can demonstrate its tonal variety. Each 30-minute recital includes a brief history of the recital organ, a review of its stop list and an introduction to the repertoire. Viewers will be treated to five hours of glorious music in venues that would be impossible to achieve at one in-person convention.
E.P. BIGGS SCHOLARS CONCERT
Owing to the postponement of both the 2020 and 2022 OHS conventions, three Biggs Scholars were unable to present their alumni recital. This year, the OHS has sponsored these young performers to prepare an exciting recital on organs dear to them. Plan to visit the OHS website in late June to watch them perform and showcase these mighty instruments.
