Schantz Peabody organ
1966 Schantz; 1996 Parkey organ at Atlanta’s Central Presbyterian Church.

Pipedreams Live! In Atlanta

It’s all about friends having fun. On this week’s Pipedreams program, Sarah Hawbecker plays the urban and urbane music of Leo Sowerby, Timothy Albrecht and John Cook. Alan Morrison explores works by Atlanta-based composer William Krape. Norman Mackenzie performs a virtuoso sonata written for him when he was just a younger guy, and Elizabeth and Raymond Chenault prove that a harmonious home life also leads to lively harmonies at the organ console, when American Public Media host Michael Barone visits with five of Georgia’s finest recitalists in a special program recorded in 1998 at Central Presbyterian Church.
