  • The Future of Organ Building: A Panel Discussion
    808 Howell St
    July 6 @ 10:00 am
    Join moderator Christa Rakich and a diverse group of experts, including David Brown, Paul Fritts, Martin Pasi, William Porter, and Michael Kraft in a discussion of the Well-Tempered Future of organ building. The history of organ building is as diverse as the history of church music and organ literature. Likewise, questions of technology, architecture, and purpose are all intangibly related to the King of Instruments. Where do we stand with the current state of organ building and where do we go with organ building in the future? How are decisions being made about concept, design, and the utilization of new technologies? Does the future of organ building keep building on the future of organ literature, or do we go in completely different directions?

Martin Pasi

Martin Pasi received his first formal experience in organ building during a four-year apprenticeship with the Rieger Company in his native Austria. In 1981 he immigrated to America and worked with several organ builders in the US and Canada until he opened his own shop in 1990. Since then, 28 instruments have been completed ranging in size from a 3-stop continuo to a large 4-manual organ. All parts including the pipes are made at his shop.
