Price: visit www.principiacollege.edu

I'm pleased to perform on Principia College's unique Casavant pipe organ as a part of their highly-respected speaker and concert series, in a program titled "Community:  Unity in Diversity."

Each of the pipes in a pipe organ can speak at only one pitch, one volume, and one timbre (tone color).  By definition, then, a pipe organ is a community of voices, each adding its unique sound to the musical conversation.  This program has been designed to illustrate the blessings of the rich diversity of compositional voices across generations and geography.
