If you will be attending the National Convention of the American Guild of Organists in Kansas City, July 2-6, 2018, I will be there too and would love to meet you. If you haven't yet registered, it's not too late.
Please feel free to say hello and ask any questions that you might have about our tour to Paris next summer. If we miss each other, please feel free to send an email. The convention is a great way to fire up our passion for this instrument and repertoire, and Paris would be a great place to express all that we will have gleaned from the convention. Have a fabulous time in Kansas City and I hope to see you there!
In July 2017, Dr. Ed Maki-Schramm led a group of organists on an amazing tour of Germany on a historic organ tour focused on the life of J.S. Bach. You can read all about the 2017 trip on our blog.
In July 2019, Ed will be leading another trip specifically designed for organists—this time to Paris, France! Learn more about the tour on our 2019 Organ Tour of France webpage and, if you're ready to sign up, register on the Organ Tour Tripsite.
