will include how this music can be interpreted for listening pleasure with a modern audience. The program will present many genres of music “roots,” music in liturgical settings, and piano music in secular settings with Southern esoteric traditions. T

he presenter will share with the participants methods that he uses to juxtapose and meld together different genres of music. The program will be an audience- friendly experience of listening to and learning about the different periods in keyboard music for both the organ and the piano.
