High Street Organ is Ready!

April 9th, 2015

Getting an organ ready for its inaugural concert is, I guess, like getting an Indy car ready for the race.  You want everything to be just right!

This Friday evening, April 10, Raul Prieto Ramirez will play the opening concert on the IV manual/70 rank E.M. Skinner/Reynolds Associates organ at High Street UMC, 219 South High Street, in downtown Muncie, IN.  The program starts at 7:30 p.m.

I listened today to Raul, an incomparable international virtuoso, preparing his program.  WOW!  This one is not-to-be-missed.  Come with an empty spirit, and by the time you leave you will be filled!

Here is a sample of the sound of the organ.  This isn’t Raul – it’s Martin Ellis, who recorded this Fanfare in the organ’s performance recorder a couple of years back.  I used it to test out my recording gear for the concert, and the result was so good, I had to share it!

It’s in Dropbox. Click on the link below.  You may have to download the file, but you can delete it when you’re through if you don’t want to save it on your computer.  But I’ll bet you will want to save it!
