Greetings from
Syracuse!   

On behalf of all us that are helping to plan your next holiday, welcome to the OHS 2014 Pipe Organ Holiday website. Here you will find the daily schedule, sample videos of featured performers and instruments, and a preview of the 2014 Calendar.

We invite you to explore the variety of instruments to be experienced in picturesque Central New York. For those that admire 19th century trackers, we have one of the oldest extant Johnson Organs, a large two-manual Barckhoff, and a J.H. Wilcox organ, all in exceptional condition. Those more in tune to the early electo-pneumatic organs will be blown away by the beauty of the three-manual Roosevelt in our Catholic cathedral, and the 1930, four-manual Möller. For those that seek the slightly newer, we will hear the last organ Ernest White designed for himself, a Schlicker tracker from 1989, and of course the magnificent 1950 Holtkamp at Syracuse University.

A special treat will be the 2011 majestic baroque organ in Cornell’s Anabel Taylor Chapel, which required over seven years of research in an international, collaborative effort by Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences and the Göteborg Organ Art Center (GOArt) at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

For the wine lovers among us, we have two optional days worth of wine tours planned in the Finger Lakes to enliven your visit to Central New York before the convention begins.

If you enjoy variety, this is the holiday for you. We hope to see you in August of 2014!

Ryan Boyle, CHAIR
2014 Convention Planning Committee
