Hello! New from Ohio


Premium Member
My name's Mike from Eastern Ohio. I belong to two lodged-- Organist in one and Pianist in the other. I'm retired, so there is time for lodge involvement. Glad to be here!

Welcome Bro Organist ! Are pianos common in Lodge ? We never see them, always organs..

Welcome to the forum Brother!

My lodge has both a piano and an organ, but no one can play them, so . . .

Funny, we have an organ and no one who knows how to play. Last week after Lodge a couple of us were wondering if it actually works! We turned it on and low and behold if you press a key, sound comes out!

Organists are getting to be rare as hens' teeth. Masonic organists, even more so. I don't suppose there that many organs around either. I've seen more pianos and electronic keyboards. There are still some lodges with pipe organs in Ohio, but I don't know how many of them still play.

Not much longer and each Lodge will have their Spotify playlist for Lodge meetings.

We have an Organist in PA for Grand Lodge as well as a Soloist. One local Lodge I have been to has a piano and pianist. Otherwise no music in Blue Lodges around here.

For Chapter we have recordings from the Penn State Male Chorus for the songs associated with the 3 Degrees we confer in Chapter in PA,

Welcome Michael ! The only piano I saw in a Lodge was the Lodge I attended in South Carolina that’s a rarity!
