We are thrilled to announce the first-ever BYU Organ Alumni Conference!

Friday, October 25 through Monday, October 28, 2024

In celebration of the new four-manual Letourneau concert organ (coming this summer), we are thrilled to announce the first-ever BYU Organ Alumni Conference! 

Save Friday evening, October 25 through Monday, October 28 (or optionally Tuesday the 29th) for the most important organ event ever at BYU.

Daniel Cook

Taking place in the new Music Building, the conference opens Friday evening with an exciting dedicatory recital by Daniel Cook (Master of the Choristers and Organist, Durham Cathedral, UK), including a performance with the BYU choirs. 

Saturday morning begins with an introduction to the new Letourneau organ by the company’s president, Andrew Forrest. Daniel Cook will then present two masterclasses. 

Other conference events include an update on the BYU Organ Department, presentations by notable BYU organ alums, playing opportunities on the new organ, online alumni biographies, and more.

Registration for the conference is $50 plus the ticket to the Daniel Cook recital (a Bravo! series event). However, the conference is offered primarily as a gift to our valued BYU organ alums, funded by the Marjorie Volkel Organ Outreach Endowment. Lunch and dinner will be provided Saturday and Monday. Travel and lodging are the responsibility of the participants.

We invite anyone to attend who has been involved with the BYU Organ Department in the following ways:

  • Organ major (both those who graduated in organ and those who were organ majors for two semesters or longer)
  • Non-organ major who took private organ instruction for credit
  • Organ Workshop instructor
  • Completed a BYU Independent Study organ course
  • Others on approval (email Elena at organ@byu.edu)
BYU Music Building

Registration will open in May – watch your email, this website, and social media for details.

We look forward to spending some time with you in the home of our new concert organ!
