Placeholder Image
MONROE - Three Monroe churches will host school-aged piano students who are interested in learning about and having an opportunity to play the organ from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19. The Madison-based Association of Church Musicians and the Madison Chapter of the American Guild of Organists are sponsoring the event "Pedals, Pipes and Pizza - Swiss Style," where piano students will learn how pipe organs are built, how they work, ways in which they are used, and then see, hear and play three different pipe organs. The event will start at 9 a.m. with a video titled "Pulling Out All the Stops," followed by students exploring and playing the 39-rank, three-manual Berghaus pipe organ at the United Methodist Church of Monroe, 2227 4th St.
