The Windsor Essex Centre of the RCCO is inviting anyone, especially young people. interested in the organ to see one up close, learn about it, hear it, and play it.
On April 23, 2022, designated venues across Windsor and Essex County will open their doors between 1 and 3 PM.
Bring a piece of music or play your favourite piece from memory, even if it is 'chopsticks'. Learn how to make different sounds using a variety of 'organ stops', take a picture of yourself on the organ bench, or record your organ playing debut.
Goal - to establish a first-time ever record of the greatest number of people possible playing an organ on International Organ Day. Setting this record, Windsor Essex will be the very first Organ Capital of Canada!
