Blackstone Pipe Organ: Recording Session with Bob Foster

Bob Foster, Music Coordinator / Organist

First English Lutheran Church

Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan

March 13-14, 2014

 

In 2014, Patti Foster contacted us about her giving her husband Bob a Christmas present consisting of a spring

trip to Cleveland and a session with the Blackstone Residence Pipe Organ. Friday afternoon, March 13, they

arrived and Todd Wilson gave them a demonstration of the instrument, followed by Bob’s spending several hours

getting acquainted with the instrument. Saturday morning was final preparation for an audio recording session,

using the Uniflex system to play back what Bob had earlier recorded.
