Powerful Pipes

The cathedral organ is best positioned to fill the house of God with music because it sounds most like the voice of God itself, capable of both bombast and whimsy. Its inspirational and reverent sound is explained and demonstrated in The Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe's The Cathedral Organ: Voicing Faith, Inspiring a City, A Celebratory Event Announcing the Cathedral Organ Project, a program of talks and concerts to bring the power and mystery of the mightiest of instruments closer to the commoner. The free event begins at 8 p.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, 2215 Ross Ave. Call 214-871-1362, ext. 61.
Fri., Jan. 12, 8 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 13, 8:30 a.m.
