Celebrating the Organ Historical Society's upcoming 58th National Convention in Vermont, this calendar contains 13 high-quality color photographs of historic pipe organs the convention will be visiting. The calendar is 8½" by 22" and opens vertically to highlight the beautiful photography!
You'll find an interesting historical tidbit pertaining to Vermont pipe organs and organbuilders on each calendar day.
Welcome to the OHS 2013 Convention website where you will find our daily schedule at-a-glance. Last summer we rolled in and out of Chicago. This year, change of direction takes us north, a great place to be in late June, where we will hear mostly small 19th Century trackers, many unaltered. In northern Vermont there are a great number of incredibly beautiful rural churches housing their original instruments. Several organs are one of a kind and one is the only remaining two-manual instrument of Vermont's most prolific 19th century builder, William Nutting, Jr. Headquartered in Burlington, we will make daily forays into the countryside, returning to the city at the end of every day, with time to relax before the evening events. On one of those evenings we will enjoy a dinner cruise on sparkling Lake Champlain.
This is going to be quite a special week! Do join us for a trip back to the 19th century in rural Vermont.
