On Saturday, February 18th,The Greater Bridgeport Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will be hosting “Pedals, Pipes and Pizza” at the Stratford United Methodist Church, 2600 Main St, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

RSVP to Eventbrite before Monday, February 13, 2023.

This event is for children ages 8 and above who are currently taking music lessons and would like to learn about the organ. This is a fun event where everyone gets to learn about and play the instrument (bring your piano music!) Participants will get an opportunity to build a small pipe organ that we then can play! Pizza lunch included – parents/guardians encouraged to stay and observe.

The Orgelkids organ is a mechanical, two rank pipe organ in a box. In the box you find all the parts to build a real organ. Children can build this organ (with a little help of an organbuilder or organist). Different tasks can be done in groups simultaneously: constructing the frame, sorting pipes, sorting keys. Then all the parts come together in the frame: the windchest, the bellows, keys and pipes. Then … play! More information: and
