Harvard Organ Society

Purpose Statement

The Harvard Organ Society is an organization for people who enjoy listening to or playing pipe organs. Throughout the year, HOS brings world-famous concert organists to Harvard to give concerts as well as master classes for HOS members. There are also many performance opportunities for student organists, including the annual Midnight Halloween Recital. The society will gladly help to locate teachers and grant access to practice instruments, including the Memorial Church organs and the Flentrop organ in Busch Hall. Other activities of the Organ Society have included trips to organ factories and excursions to various places of interest, including a 1997 trip led by Professor Christoph Wolff to Germany to perform on Baroque instruments, a 1999 trip to France, a 2002 trip to Holland and England, and a 2003 organ crawl to Worcester, Massachusetts.
