Ethan Haman, 17, has earned the Colleague of the American Guild of Organists credential, a level most organists do not achieve until well after college.

At Ethan Haman’s farewell pipe organ concert at Christ Episcopal Church in Los Altos, even the small marble bust of Johann Sebastian Bach atop the organ console seemed to look on with approval.

Nearly 100 friends and fans attended the 17-year-old’s concert, soaking in the music and seeing him off on his next adventure.
