The 14th annual Philadelphia Young Artists Organ Camp took place June 23–28.

Teaching and organ class venues included St. Clement’s Church, Girard College Chapel, and the Wanamaker Organ at Macy’s Department Store. During the camp the students had daily lessons with Alan Morrison (organ literature), Peter Richard Conte (transcriptions), and Matthew Glandorf (hymn playing and improvisation), plus an organ class. The intensive program concluded with two recitals featuring both organ literature and transcriptions at St. Clement’s Church and Macy’s on the Wanamaker Organ.

The camp is generously funded by the Sansom Foundation and enables the students to attend tuition free. Therefore, enrollment is limited and acceptance is highly competitive. Students selected for this year were Emily Amos, Dominic Fiacco, Michael Gibson, and Alexander Leonardi.
