Solo organ concert: "Hommage" - 2:00pm
908 Rutherford St
Shreveport, LA 71104
U.S.A. [map]

I am so pleased to return to perform for the second time on the annual East Texas Pipe Organ Festival.  This unique event honors the life and work of Roy Perry (1906-1978) and features Aeolian-Skinner pipe organs in the East Texas area designed and tonally finished by Perry and the Williams Family of New Orleans. This year I'm excited to be playing Aeolian-Skinner's Opus 1308 at St. Mark's Cathedral, Shreveport, Louisiana -- an instrument built just prior to the same company's Opus 1309 at The Auditorium Organ in Independence, one of the three large pipe organs I care for in Kansas City.

For more information on the Festival, visit www.easttexaspipeorganfestival.com.  Many Festival events, including this concert, are free and open to the public.

Planned repertoire includes:

PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY (1840-1893), transcr. George J. Bennett:  Coronation March

ROBERT SCHUMANN (1810-1856):  Fugue No. 1 from Sechs Fugen über den Namen BACH, Op. 60

MILOŠ SOKOLA (1913-1976):  Passacaglia quasi Toccata on B-A-C-H
