Pipe organs to be part of tour

Pipe organs at Peabody United Methodist Church and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church will be part of a family pipe organ tour Feb. 22.

Co-leading the tour will be Christopher Shaw, a Peabody-Burns High School and Bethel College graduate who has participated in recitals at both churches.

The tour will begin at Bethel College in North Newton, where participants will view two organs before moving on to Peabody.

Each stop will include a brief history and inspection of the instrument, a demonstration by one of the leaders, and a chance for those on the tour to play the pipe organs.

The Wichita Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is sponsoring the tour, which will be at 2 p.m. Feb. 22. More information is available on the chapter’s website,, or by emailing
