Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza

  • Episcopal Church of the Redeemer 5603 North Charles Street Baltimore, MD, 21210 United States (map)

This great event, designed for 4th and 5th graders, will take place at Redeemer Church and will introduce the kids to the wonders of the pipe organ. They will see and handle organ pipes up close. They will learn how mechanical action works by watching the moving parts in a specially built demonstration organ. Since Redeemer is blessed with two unique pipe organs, the kids will get a chance to see/hear/play each of the instruments and learn about the wide range of tone, volume, pitch that pipe organs possess. It is not necessary that the youngster have experience playing the organ or piano. They just need a good curiosity! After a sumptuous repast of pizza, Michael Britt will offer a presentation of some hilarious silent movies that everyone will enjoy. The organ demonstrators for the day will be Sam Springer, organ professor at Morgan State University and Michael Britt, DOM at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Park Avenue.
