Visit to an Amazing Home Organ
Dale Ziegenfelder has realized his dream of having a working pipe organ in his home, and we are invited to visit! You can read about Dale's journey and see photos of his pipe dream come true in this article. John Vanderlee is coordinating the trip, and it's important to RSVP to him at jovanderlee@vassar.edu or at 914-475-0444 ahead of time if you are thinking of going so that car pools can be arranged. Dale Ziegenfelder's home is in Glenford, NY, 45 minutes from Poughkeepsie going North on Route 28 out of Kingston, a bit before Woodstock. The exact street address is 85 High Rocks Road, Glenford, NY. But if you go by a GPS use Woodstock. It should be a pleasant afternoon spent getting a tour and/or playing this amazing house organ!
