The 54th Annual
Conference on Organ Music

Honoring Dr. Michele Johns

September 28th - 30th, 2014

 

Welcome!

The Organ Department at the University of Michigan invites you to join us in celebrating Dr. Michele Johns in her retirement after 33 years of teaching. The week will honor her with an alumni concert and tribute dinner; the Third Annual Organ Improvisation Competition; and recitals by our two new faculty members, Dr. Joseph Gascho, Assistant Professor of Harpsichord and Dr. Kola Owolabi, Associate Professor of Organ.

Additional conference highlights include annual treats such as a presentation by the incomparable Michael Barone and a concert by Professor Jörg Abbing. We also look forward to presenting the lecture, concert, and visual offerings of numerous scholars and musicians on this joyous occasion of the 54rd Conference on Organ Music!

Please join us and Michele, our soon-to-be Professor Emerita!
