We were delightfully surprised by a very impressive turnout, but the elegant and impassioned playing by Hans Fagius was everything we expected. The heat was on!
internationally-touring virtuoso appears at Bethel University,
(organ by Lyle Blackinton)
With an engaging stage presence, a compelling virtuosity, and the collaborative presence of the Janus Duo in two works with percussion, Stephen Tharp made clear that a program made entirely of 20th century music can be some powerful fun, really hot stuff!
titulaire at Saint Peter’s Cathedral (Poitiers) and faculty at the Versailles Conservatory in France appears at House of Hope Presbyterian Church,

Jean-Baptiste Robin’s eclectic repertoire spanned five centuries, and his two original compositions provided a special element to this sizzling conclusion to our week-long festival.
Pipedreams host Michael Barone will be master-of-ceremonies for all concerts, and also interview the players, talk with organbuilders, and demystify some of the arcana of organdom.
