Pipe Screams! 2011

How fitting that my first post after a long time is a concert post! Tim Baker over at University United Methodist Church organised another Pipe Screams! for this year. It was co-sponsored by the Durham-Chapel Hill Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
Just as in previous years, this year's Pipe Screams! benefit Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. In addition to Tim and UUMC's Handbell Choir, members of the Durham-Chapel Hill AGO also contributed pieces to this most entertaining program. Speaking of which, here is the music that was presented at this program.
