Sponsored by the Dallas and Fort Worth Chapters of the American Guild of Organists, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and Classical WRR-FM101.1, this exuberant Pipedreams Live! event really put the Lay Family Concert Organ (1992 C.B. Fisk) through its paces.

Michael Barone returns to the Meyerson as guest commentator for another Pipedreams Live! event on April 17, 2007 at 8PM, with organist Mary Preston and the Dallas Wind Symphony.

And plan ahead to hear the Meyerson Fisk organ again, played by Uruguayan recitalist Cristina Garcia Banegas featuring composers from Spain and South America and the 1996 Dallas Competition winner Stewwart Wayne Foster with music by Buxtehude, Bruce Neswick, Brian Sawyers and Guilmant, during a concert of the Region VII American Guild of Organists Convention on June 18, 2007 at 7:30PM.
