Meet Michael!

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


June 7, 2014
11:00Am–5:00PM – Michael Barone is master-of-ceremonies for Philadelphia Organ Day 2014,  a free, day-long, family-friendly exploration of the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Pipe Organ in Philadelphia's Verizon Hall.  


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! 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.
