Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments

 

Pipedreams originated as a discrete series of fourteen broadcasts, offered from January to April 1982, with content primarily derived from concerts recorded during the 1980 AGO convention. These programs were produced at Minnesota Public Radio and distributed by American Public Radio, now PRI and were made possible in cooperation with National Public Radio. Funding came from the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, the Dayton Hudson Foundation, the Episcopal Choirmasters Handbook created by John C. Grant, and Mr. & Mrs. Wesley C. Dudley. The Dudleys have thankfully continued as program underwriters through the entire history of Pipedreams.

AGO 1980

the very first Pipedreams broadcast features highlights from the 1980 National Convention of the American Guild of Organists held in the Minnesota Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
