Each pipe in a pipe organ - 1800 of them in the Barhydt Organ - can sing only one pitch at one volume and one timbre. By definition, making music on a pipe organ can only be accomplished when diverse voices sing in community. Hear works from the classical to the theatre organ worlds, played by the talented hands and feet of DR. JAN KRAYBILL in her performance on the Barhydt Organ, "A Community of Voices."
Felix Mendelssohn said, "The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety." Dr. Kraybill's exciting and virtuosic program will feature music from the many fascinating areas in which the pipe organ shines. You will hear transcriptions such as Mendelssohn's Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream, works for theater pipe organ, and classical pipe organ compositions.
