Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments

Michael’s Appearances!

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

July 18, 2014, Friday:

Michael Barone revisits his home territory back east to narrate "Touchstones" by Edward Madden during a Wind Ensemble concert, one of the many summer offerings of the Wyoming Seminary Performing Arts Institute in Kingston, Pennsylvania.  Conductor for that event is Michael's long-time friend (and college roommate) Colonel Timothy Foley (US Marine Band).  No pipe organs this time, but come and say hello anyway!


August 10-15, 2014, Sunday through Friday:

A Finger Lakes Festival of Organ Music — this year's annual gathering of the Organ Historical Society centers around Syracuse, New York, and since one of Michael Barone's favorite instruments is the iconic 1950 Holtkamp pipe organ in Setnor Auditorium in Crouse College on the Syracuse University campus (and his mother earned a degree in art there, too), you can expect to find him in the thick of things all week long.  The traditional hymn sing-alongs that are part of every OHS recital are themselves worth the price of admission.  Come for the week, or attend just a day…you'll not be disappointed!



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.
