BAGO member Rosalind Mohnsen was chosen by the Organ Historical Society to receive the Distinguished Service Award. Rosalind was honored at the 2018 OHS National Convention in Rochester, NY. The Distinguished Service Award is the premier recognition given by the Organ Historical Society for volunteer work by members of the organization. It recognizes significant contributions of the highest order for the promotion and betterment of the Society. Promotion can include noteworthy and outstanding contributions to the programs and mission of the Society as well as advertising and public relations. Recipients are members of the OHS who have contributed significant service in terms of time, talent, and work.
The award is richly deserved by tireless Rosalind. Her integrity and honesty bring the organs she plays to life.
Rosalind’s biography is filled with recitals for OHS (over twenty-three!), AGO and BAGO. She was featured in the Boston 2014 convention, playing the 1883 Hook and Hastings, Opus 1168 at St. Joseph’s Church in Boston. Rosalind also wrote an article for the online journal Musforum in November 2013 outlining the work she calls her real calling, church music. 
Congratulations, Rosalind!
