Pipe Dreams   |   "Michael Barone, Host   |   Building upon a curiosity which began in his teens, Michael Barone has been involved with the pipe organ for more than 50 years. As host and senior executive producer of Pipedreams, he is recognized nationally for his outstanding contributions to the world of organ music. Pipedreams began in 1982, and it remains the only nationally distributed weekly radio program exploring the art of the pipe organ. Michael’s talent and commitment have been recognized with numerous awards, including the American Guild of Organists President’s Award in 1996, the Distinguished Service Award of the Organ Historical Society in 1997 and the 2001 ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award. In November 2002 he was selected for induction to the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame."   |

American Pipe Organ Builders Associations   |   "Publications on planning and fundraising for a pipe organ are available. It would be nicer to have the information on-line, but they can be ordered by phone or internet. I would recommend that any church which plans to get a new organ read these publications first. Don't rule out a pipe organ because electronic instruments are not always cheaper."   |

Wikipedia   |   Pipe Organ Portal   |   "The pipe organ is a musical instrument that produces sound by admitting air (wind) through a series of different sized pipes. This process is controlled through the use of keyboards. One of the oldest musical instruments—its origins can be traced back to the Greeks—the organ is capable of sustaining sound for as long as the key is depressed, in contrast to other keyboard instruments, such as the piano and harpsichord."
