Friday concert fulfills every expectation
Thankfully the organist for the Friday Pipe Organ concert was feeling well enough to perform this week. Tim and I met at the SOB (state office building) and ate lunch while the guy played this great pipe organ, a Kimball Theater Pipe Organ. He started off with a patriotic medley with songs such as The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy, and a few more standards mixed in. The acoustics were very good but I'm glad I wasn't trying to do business on the phone with someone working in the building.
The next song was a classic…do-do-do, doo doo doo doo, you know…Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor…from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
The next selections were a mix of hymns, easy-listening standards, Sousa Marches, Disney medleys, and Saturday matinee movie music.
It was an enjoyable way to spend lunch and I highly recommend it if you're in town on a Friday around noontime.
