Ask an organ student!
Have you ever wondered how the pipe organ works? Ask your organist OR your local organ student! Shelby Underwood of Logan, IA, a piano and organ student of Dr. Christensen, has learned about more than simply playing the organ. This year for her 4-H project, she created a display board about the history of the organ and how it works. Her project is currently on display at the Harrison County Fair (Missouri Valley), where she was awarded a reserve champion ribbon! We plan to display Shelby's project at our conservatory within the coming weeks. Thank you to Dr. C for his dedicated instruction, and thank you to First Lutheran in Missouri Valley for allowing Shelby to practice on its organ during the week! For more information about organ instruction at SPMC or for ideas regarding opportunities/resources available for organ study where you live, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
