Celebrate the holidays

on the latest pipe organ installation in Eugene
at the Conger Street Clock Museum.

J. D. Olson, owner of Creative Clock and the Conger Street Clock Museum is, amongst other things, a collector of organs. His latest addition is the Schlicker practice organ that used to be housed in the basement of the U of O music building. Now safely ensconced in a corner of his wondrous Conger Street Clock Museum, it joins an eclectic mix of things collectable. Not one to avoid stepping up to a mechanical challenge, he has made remarkable additions to this instrument.

The most striking improvement is a set of glass swell shades operable from a newly installed swell pedal. Now there is expression adjustment available, while you can still the full beauty of the pipes. Other additions include a piano keyboard, a set of chimes, and a set of bells! A crescendo pedal has also been added.

COME PLAY THIS ORGAN

AGO members are invited to come play this organ, and share seasonal Christmas music and carols on two Saturday afternoons:

December 15, 3 to 5 pm  &  December 22, 3 to 5 pm

J. D. proposes adding to his advertising that professional organists from the Eugene Chapter of the AGO will be playing during those hours. See Dean Richard Guy to sign up for a 30 or 60 minute time slot to help celebrate the season, and installation of this organ.
