St. Michael and All Angels Cathedral will next Thursday, December 28 come alive with the sound of organ music, at a recital to raise funds for Barbados’ HIV/AIDS programme.
The National HIV/AIDS Commission will benefit from the event, which is under the patronage of Prime Minister, Owen Arthur and Mrs Arthur.
Mr. Harry Lyn Huff, Assistant Organist and Choirmaster in The Memorial Church in Harvard University, and Director of Music and Lecturer on Ministry at the Harvard Divinity School will play selections from Bach, Dandrieu, Franck, and Tchaikovsky.
Mr. Huff’s recent solo organ performances have included the Peter Schickele "PDQ Bach" concerts in Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Busoni’s Doktor Faust. He presented the American premiere of Philip Glass’s Voices for Organ and Didgeridoo in Alice Tully Hall for the 2001 Lincoln Center Festival with Aboriginal didgeridoo player Mark Atkins, and appeared with the Paul Winter Consort on the newly restored Massey concert organ at the 2003 Chautauqua Summer Festival.
