Open Console Experience on Temple Square

Wednesday, August 3, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Organ Workshop participants will have the opportunity to play one of the organs on Temple Square.  An organ recital performed by Dr. Jacob Hofeling will also be held at the Cathedral of St. Mark in Salt Lake City.

Online participants who can join us on Temple Square are welcome to participate.  Virtual Organ Crawls will also be made available to online participants.

Transportation

You may drive yourself and meet us on Temple Square or pay $40 to ride in a bus or van.  Bus registration is now closed.  If additional space is available on the bus, seats may be purchased at the workshop.

Bus transportation will depart from the BYU Museum of Art at 3:45 p.m. and arrive in Salt Lake City around 4:45 p.m.  The bus will return participants to the BYU Museum of Art at approximately 10:30 p.m. Please make arrangements to transport yourself to your housing after the excursion, as buses or vans will be unable to deliver participants to any area hotels or other destinations.

Those who do not pay for bus transportation are responsible for their own transportation between Temple Square and the Cathedral of St. Mark, located at 231 E 100 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

You are responsible for providing your own dinner while in Salt Lake City.

Organ Preference

The Organ Preference form is now closed.  If you would like to play an organ on Temple Square, please stop by the Information Desk to see if there is space available.

Participants will be given the choice of three organs to play.  They are located in the Assembly Hall, Conference Center, and Tabernacle.  Descriptions of the organs can be found here:  Organs on Temple Square

We will try to accommodate everyone’s first choice, but it is not guaranteed.  The amount of playing time you have will be based on how many people have selected that organ.  An instructor will register the organ for you.

If you would like to play one of the organs, please indicate your preference in the form below.  Forms must be filled out by Friday, July 29.  Participants who add after that date will not be given a choice of organs.
