Harvard Organ Society

The Harvard Organ Society (HOS), an official student organization of Harvard College, welcomes all who love the pipe organ and its music! Harvard students form the core of HOS's membership, yet many friends from the wider community play a vital role in the group's activities. 

Among other activities—such as sponsoring Harvard's famous midnight Halloween concert—the HOS organizes visits to notable instruments throughout the Boston area and wider New England. 

Additionally, the HOS hosts the weekly lunchtime recital series on Thursdays at 12:15 pm in Adolphus Busch Hall, and regularly invites world-famous concert organists to hold masterclasses on a variety of topics such as improvisation, service-playing, and early organ repertoire. Previous guests include Olivier Latry, Madame Marie-Louis Langlais, and Nathan Laube.

Those with questions—or anyone interested in joining the HOS—are encouraged to email HarvardOrganSociety@gmail.com
