POE 2011, Birmingham . . . . Sunday night check-in

To all the naysayers: the organ is not dead! Region IV's POE is currently being held in Birmingham. 22 students descended on the campus of Samford University for the 2011 edition of the Region IV 'Pipe Organ Encounter.'

Sunday night parents dropped students off at Reid Chapel.

Our home away from home were dormitories on the Samford Campus . . . hot showers and a place to sleep. Perfect!

The opening evening concluded with a visit to The Alabama, home to a fantastic Wurlitzer theatre organ. Ken Double, President and CEO of the American Theatre Organ Society, gave us all a great musical tour of the organ and all the POE attendees were able to try out the instrument. What a great prelude to the week!
