Recital soloist Peter Sykes and festival organist John Mitchener were recorded in the new Visitor’s Center Auditorium in Old Salem during a Tannenberg Rededication Symposium and Festival, March 19-21, 2004. After nearly a century of silence, this most significant early-American-built pipe organ makes music once again. A compact disc of selections from the rededication concert is available from Raven Records on Raven OAR-700
