'Hot Keys and Burning Brass' Lights up the Forum

Play

The Binghamton Theatre Organ Society presents acclaimed organist David Gray and virtuoso trumpeter Frank Campos together in ‘Hot Keys and Burning Brass’.  David Gray grew up in Scotland and first heard a theatre organ when he was a boy, and immediately wanted to learn to play it.  Frank Campos is a professor at Ithaca College and recordings of one of his recitals turn up often on Performance Today.  They talk about this collaboration and the process of putting together an exhilarating program as it is happening. The program will be announced as it unfolds, so be prepared for surprises. http://wskg.org/audio/btosgray.mp3
