Michael was host for this special Pipedreams Live! event recorded October, 23 2007 featuring the Anton Heiller Memorial Organ at the Collegedale Church of Southern Adventist University in Tennessee. Dutch Guest recitalist Sietze de Vries explored the varied sonic possibilities of John Brombaugh’s magnum opus tracker-action instrument from 1986 with 70 stops, 108 ranks, and 4861 individual pipes. Gennevieve Brown-Kibble conducted the campus choir and congregation in lusty song, to which Mr. de Vries provided imaginative improvised accompaniments and interpolations.

Both George Ritchie on Raven OAR-400 and Wolfgang Rübsam on Naxos 8.553135, have recorded all-Bach albums featuring the Collegedale Brombaugh organ.

The next Pipedreams Live! event brings Michael to Rochester, New York, for a weekend of performances by faculty and students of the Eastman School of Music, February 13-14-15, 2009.
