Meet Michael!

Michael Barone makes personal appearances here and there, and would love to greet you at one of these upcoming events:

October 2-4, 2016
Michael Barone is one of several guest presenters at the 56th Annual Conference on Organ Music at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

October 23, 2016
Michael Barone returns to the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, TX for a PIPEDREAMS LIVE! event to inaugurating a new season in the Opus 100: Lay Family Concert Organ Series.

You can 'meet Michael' in places that few have a chance to visit, inside the marvelous, magnificent and monumental Wanamaker Grand Court Organ at Macy's Philadelphia Department Store…via a superb behind-the-scenes visit with Wanamaker Organ curator Curt Mangel, via a detailed DVD that reveals much about this incredible music-making masterpiece.

An Amazing Organ Restoration Story:

[Organ Renovation]
On many occasions, PIPEDREAMS broadcasts have featured compact discs from the catalog of JAV Recordings. The inspiration for that catalog, and the devotion of its manager, was initiated years ago by the sound of a modest church organ in Brooklyn, an instrument that had been silent for more than a decade, but now lives again! The organ at Our Lady of Refuge Church is quite extraordinary, and its restoration revealed a surprisingly versatile instrument which, despite its modest specification, has been proven capable of playing a wide variety of music in an authoritative and compelling way. Check out a New York Times article about its restoration, enjoy the Brooklyn Daily newspaper coverage of its rededication, and listen to the organ put to the test by Olivier Latry as Father Michael Perry exhorts it to fulfill its destiny below, and follow the history of the project.
