About the performance

The tonal style of the Ahrend organ (built 2006) at the University of Calgary sit at the crossroads of a rich family tree of scientific, artistic, and cultural traditions. Organist, Neil Cockburn, curates this performance to highlight the origins of these styles in music and image.

A co-production with Early Music Voices
