March 23….A Town Hall Organ Festival - The Texas Tech University School of Music presents the International Celebration of the Organ 2008-2009 with Thomas Hughes. The International Year of the Organ is a year-long Celebration of the Organ. The year will include various events in this country and abroad and will entertain, inform, and engage new audiences for organ music, while giving seasoned listeners a fresh perspective on the organ's expansive repertoire. What people don't know is that the organ has been a mainstay of international musicians since the 12th century. Originating some 2,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, the organ has been used in gladiatorial games, as gifts by kings and queens and, most importantly, as a tool to produce the world's universal language: music. Hughes will be joined by several other organists as well as flute and cantor. There is no admission charge. Hemmle Recital Hall, Texas Tech University; 8 p.m.
