Fifty years ago, Michael Barone graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory and, not wanting to go on immediately to grad school, found a job with a small radio station in central Minnesota. He never did make his way back to academia and has been with that ‘little station’… now the impressive Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media enterprise… for fifty years, for the past thirty-five years as host-producer of Pipedreams. As he realized while recording these students in May 2016, the organ scene at Oberlin has changed quite a bit since he was a student!

The majority of these recordings of Oberlin students were made by Michael Barone (Conservatory class of 1968) on May 8-9-10, 2016. Click here for more information about Organ Studies at Oberlin.
