About the event

Here’s an opportunity to learn about Oaxaca’s pipe organs from the late 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Where are they? What characteristics make them unique in the world of pipe organs? Do they still work? How do they fit into 21st century culture? Is it possible to hear them? This two-part presentation begins with an informative lecture at the Oaxaca Lending Library by organist David Furniss.

Part two is an on-site visit the next day to see and hear one of these restored historic instruments – up close and personal! It is only for individuals registered for the January 25th lecture and is at no additional charge.

Presenter: 

David Furniss is a US resident who has been a regular visitor to Oaxaca for over 25 years. Retired from a 36-year career as a full-time church musician, David has enjoyed many opportunities over the years to perform solo organ concerts in the US, Mexico, and Germany. He has attended and performed in four Oaxaca International Organ Festivals and has served as guest instructor for organ students in Oaxaca. He is a member of the Instituto de Órganos Históricos de Oaxaca (IOHIO) Advisory Board. Currently he spends random parts of the year at his home in Oaxaca, while also maintaining part-time residence in suburban Philadelphia.
