The Organ Media Foundation is a non-profit organization chartered in 2011 to help promote the ongoing work of organists and organ builders around the world.
Organlive was our first step in putting organ music onto the Internet. This station broadcasts organ music 24 hours a day, completely free and without commercial interruption.
Positively Baroque is our second streaming station. It plays music from the glorious baroque period of music history, both on period and modern organs.
The Organ Experience is our third streaming station. There you can hear 30-minute to 2-hour blocks of similarly themed music.
At the Organ is our occasional podcast. Content varies from interviews, deep explorations of timely topics, and historic recordings.
In 2018 we began a series exploring various elements of organ building including visiting pipe organs all around the country and viewing them inside and out.
Organ Media's first foray into terrestrial radio is our one-hour weekly show hosted by Mark Scholtz and Bill Stein. It is heard on the air in St. Louis, Missouri, and is available anywhere via Soundcloud.
Organ Media offers quality audio and video recording services. For information about helping to spread the word about your organ or musical performances, please contact us.
Organ Media also archives historic information and is working to make all data available to the public via the web. For information about supporting these efforts, visit our Support section.
"To promote and fund the art and music of the classical organ in new and traditional media." We seek to encourage and help those who seek to share the art and music of the classical organ in its many forms with a wider world through the use of both traditional and emerging media forms.
Organ Media was incorporated in 2011 to serve as a funding source for ongoing projects. Our first station, Organlive.com, began broadcasting in August of 2003. As support from listeners grew, a group of devoted supporters came together to form an organization that continues to grow today. We maintain an expanding recording library of more than 30,000 tracks.
The Organ Media Foundation is a non-profit organization, and as such,
receives all of our funding from listeners that wish to see us continue
in our mission. We wish to focus on the music of the organ and not on
supporters for money, so each April, we take one month to actively
appeal to our listeners for support in funding our budget. This method
allows us to keep the interruptions of our broadcasts and solicitations
of our supporters
to a bare minimum.
Our primary expenses are generated by our streaming audio stations,
Organlive, Positively Baroque, and The Organ Experience. Expenses for
such streams include stream hosting, web hosting and backup space,
licensing, server and network hardware, library additions, and voiceover
talent. Even our domain names cost us a few dollars each year. This
year our estimated budget for just the streaming stations is $18,320.
Your help will ensure that the Organ Media Foundation can continue to fund our ongoing projects for another year. We have given several suggested donation amounts, however, you may choose to give any amount you wish. You may make a one-time contribution, or set up a recurring monthly donation.
Sponsors will be recognized by name below. We thank you for your support!
