About the event

Don’t miss the debut of John and Alice Butler Hall’s new Dobson 3,000-plus pipe organ, Opus 97, featuring University Organist and Professor of Music Dr. Charles Barland. The repertoire was chosen to highlight this extraordinary instrument’s symphony of sound. The program showcases music from Charles Marie-Widor, J.S. Bach, American composers Billy Strayhorn and Dudley Buck, and more. Buck’s Variations on the Star-Spangled Banner will demonstrate the many colors of Opus 97. The program finale reveals the organ’s full capacity with music by Alexandre Guilmant. Special thanks to John and Alice Butler for their gift of the John and Alice Butler Organ.
