General Information

Organ Workshop will be held August 6-9, 2019. One-day attendance options are not available. Please plan to register early because space is limited. Registration for the 2019 program will begin on March 1, 2019. *Please note: the Open Console Experience is available every other year of the Organ Workshop--because it was held in 2018, the next opportunity to play one of the big organs on Temple Square will be in 2020.

If you register for a placement audition or private lesson, we will contact you in July 2019 (after our instructors have finalized their availability and schedules) for you to schedule a time for the audition or private lesson.
