OHS 2017 Calendar
The Organ Historical Society 2017 Calendar celebrates the 62nd annual OHS convention, which will take place August 5–11 in Minnesota, highlighting organs in our nation’s heartland.
This calendar is filled with photographs by Len Levasseur—12 different instruments, one for each month—ranging from an 1877 Johnson & Son to a 1963 Casavant, with instruments by 19th-century Minnesota builders Joseph Lorenz and Vogelpohl & Spaeth, the pair of Skinner and Aeolian-Skinner/Quimby organs at the Cathedral of St. Paul, plus unusual examples by Steer & Turner, Hinners, and Hutchings, more contemporary classics by Schlicker, Wicks, and C.B. Fisk, and the 1927 Casavant repurposed by Schantz for St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi. Lise Schmidt’s article offers a local history that places the organs in context, punctuated by still more organ photos. The calendar highlights U.S. holidays and the major dates of the Christian and Jewish year.
