Michael’s Appearances!

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

September 6, 2014, Friday:

Organ-and-orchestra concerts are a rare treat, and hearing the Wanamaker Organ with a fully professional ensemble is even rarer.  Don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of a memorable experience, when Rossen Milanov conducts New Jersey's Symphony in C, with resident organ soloist Peter Richard Conte, in the famous Symphony No. 3 ("Organ") by Saint-Saëns, the Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani by Poulenc, and Elgar's Cockaigne Overture.  Michael Barone will be on hand as master-of-ceremonies, and hopes to see you in the audience.

September 19, 2014, Friday at 7:30 p.m.:

Michael Barone introduces and interviews 2012 American Guild of Organists Competition Winner Daryl Robinson during his free Organ Series concert at Bethel University in Arden Hills/Saint Paul, MN, featuring the 67-rank 4000-pipe organ (built in 2003 by Lyle Blackinton) in Benson Great Hall.

September 28-30, 2014, Monday at 9:30 a.m.:

As part of the 54th Annual Conference on Organ Music at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (September 28-30), Michael Barone presents an hour-long Monday morning workshop session titled "So Little Time, So Much Music", a whirlwind CD-amplified and verbally annotated sampler of some interesting and undeservedly neglected repertoire/performers.  


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.
