Housing Needed
Sixteen inspirational young players come to participate in the first-ever Boston Bach International Organ Competition from September 1st through 9th. They will arrive on August 28th to prepare for the three competition rounds, hailing from across Europe, Korea and the midwestern and southern US. Some of these competitors are in need of housing. If you would be interested in hosting one of these young artists during their stay in Boston, and are near a T station, please contact the competition headquarters at First Lutheran Church for more information, 617-536-8851 or secretariat@bbioc.org


Buy Your Music from the Boston AGO Organ Library !

The AGO Organ Library, housed in the School of Theology at Boston University, has lots of used organ music for sale at relatively inexpensive prices. At the moment our supply is large, and we are offering discounts on Bach Scores, especially if you are a student. The Library is physically open only on Sunday afternoons, but it’s much easier (for you and for us) if you shop online anyway, so visit our website and click on “Music Sales” in the menu along the right side of the picture. There are various categories to look in (individual composers; collections; method books; books about organ music.) Then send us an email with your order (don’t try to call on the phone); We’ll email you back with the total and the shipping cost. We’re not fast (our staff is very tiny, often only 1 person) but we are cheap, very knowledgeable about the repertoire, and only charge necessary shipping costs. Our email is orglib@bu.edu.

Happy music hunting,
Carl Klein, DMA
