The 2017 Pipe Organ Encounter events are open for attendance registration, and enrollment is starting to fill up, with only 4 openings left in one POE. Early registration deadlines range from March 1 to May 1 across eight POE events.
This year, for the first time, the AGO is sponsoring two Pipe Organ Encounter Advanced events in the same summer: Birmingham, Alabama (www.bhampoea.org) and Seattle, Washington (http://agoseattle.com/poea2017.html). We also have both a POE-Tech for ages 16-23, and a POE+ for those 18 and over.
Here are messages from their directors…
Pipe Organ Encounter Advanced(POEA) is for students in grades 9-12 who have achieved a high level in organ study. Prospective students must submit an audition recording to apply. A POEA provides daily lessons and a unique opportunity for participants to meet and interact with peers who have similar interests.
