The Utah Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is excited to announce that we will once again be holding our Super Saturday for Organists!
***Keep checking back, as more information, a finalized schedule, class descriptions, and links to handouts will be added to this page on a regular basis.
Super Saturday is our chapter’s gift to the growing community of church organists in Utah Valley and beyond. This free training day, held April 29, 2023 at the new BYU Music Building, is open for the public to learn more about the organ and to be inspired to improve their organ-playing skills. If you are a pianist wishing to try the organ, someone called to play for church services, or an advanced organist with the desire to meet with others who share your love for music, this workshop is for you!
Super Saturday, held from 8:00-3:00, begins with a keynote address by local organist, choral director and composer Jim Kasen, followed by several break-out sessions, and concludes with a hymn sing. Classes are offered on varied topics geared towards youth, beginning, intermediate and advanced organists. We invite all to come and enjoy! Admission is free.

While pre-registration is optional for the adult classes, pre-registration is required for the youth track.
We hope to see you there!
