Pedals, Pipes and Pizza

YSU and Youngstown AGO presents Pedals, Pipes and Pizza on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Trinity United Methodist Church. This fun workshop is designed to introduce middle school and high school music students to the king of instruments, the pipe organ. This ancient instrument is uniquely massive in scope and sound. Participants will learn how the organ is different from the piano. They will also have a chance to play the 88 rank Moller pipe organ in Trinity United Methodist Church of Youngstown, Ohio. It is the largest pipe organ in the city! The workshop is free to attend.

Students under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the workshop. The recital is open to the public, so please invite anyone who may be interested!
