We will continue to reflect on Conventional Wisdom by drawing upon other recordings made during several past AGO conventions while anticipating the next one coming up in Boston (June 22-27, 2014), and hoping to see you there!
During the AGO’s 2008 National Convention in the Twin Cities, Michael Barone was host for a multi-faceted Pipedreams Live! event at the Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, MN. Share in the fun (Part 1 and Part 2), and additional highlights from AGO 2008 online.
Also, the Minnesota Organ Book was featured in yet another program.
