Blair Presents: An Introduction to the Blair School’s New Pipe Organ, Feb. 8


An Introduction to the Blair School’s New Pipe Organ
Carl Smith, organist

Sunday, February 8
3:00 p.m., Steve & Judy Turner Recital Hall

This program marks the dedication of the Blair School’s new Dobson pipe organ,whose construction and installation were made possible through a generous gift from Cal Turner Jr. and Laura Dugas. The organ is given to Blair in honor of longtime and much-loved Vanderbilt organist Cyrus Daniel, on behalf of all his former students — a group that includes Turner!

The first part of the event will be an informal discussion of the organ’s design and musical characteristics, with numerous musical illustrations. This will be followed by a formal 45-minute recital on the organ, which will include music by Couperin, Bach, Brahms and others. A reception will follow the recital, with an opportunity to meet the organ builder.

Presented with gratitude to Lois and Peter Fyfe for their generous support of the Blair School
