Spring Organ Crawl May 8-19, 2000


Prepare to be enchanted! Explore the heart of Bach Country with Minnesota Public Radio's Michael Barone (host of Pipedreams) during a 10+ day visit to historic organs in Europe from May 8 - 19, 2000. Combine the opportunity to travel, the fellowship of organ enthusiasts and music lovers, and an exotic itinerary that includes Berlin, Potsdam, Wittenber, Leipzig, Eisenach, Dresden and Prague (see map).

Meet with resident organists and composers, gain hands-on experience with some of Europe's finest organs in Altenberg, Weimar, Halle and Erfurt, tour the Schuke organ factory in Potsdam and the Meissen porcelain factory in Dresden, hear numerous concerts and recitals, and experience the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig during the 'Year of Bach'.

The entire trip costs only $2,995 including airfare, guides, land transportation, accommodations, daily breakfast and six dinners. A small portion of the fee will support the restoration of the historic 1896 Felgemaker tracker organ at the Sacred Heart Music Center in Duluth.
