Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments
Sunday, February 4, 2007
On a snowy Sunday afternoon in northwest Michigan, several hundred avid organ-music-lovers converged on Interlochen’s Dendrinos Chapel/Recital Hall for a performance event featuring students of Interlochen faculty organist Thomas Bara…four current Interlochen students, three recent Interlochen graduates, and two attendees of the previous summer’s Interlochen Organ Camp. The occasion was recorded and produced for delayed local broadcast on Interlochen Public Radio, WIAA-88.7FM .
Presenter of the local WIAA broadcast was Thomas Bara. Editor and producer was Thom Paulson, audio engineer was Jack Conners. Michael Barone served as event guest host and spoke with the student performers during the course of the program.
