EPISODE #26 MUSIC FROM THE TOWER: GUESTS ARE FRED SWANN AND RICHARD UNFRIED
Episode 26 January 13, 2018 The two legends of the Crystal Cathedral, Dr. Frederick Swann and Mr. Richard Unfried. These two men presided over the great Hazel Wright Organ for many years.
Hear fascinating stories of the days when “Hazel” was being created. Find out just who was the actual Hazel Wright and about her role in bringing about this great instrument. Hear all about how they acquired the Aeolian-Skinner organ from Philharmonic Hall in New York and even about a special “Hour of Power” which was held in Philharmonic Hall to celebrate receiving this great pipe organ. This episode is filled with lots of memories of the putting together of the Arboretum’s large Ruffatti pipe organ, combining it with the Philharmonic organ and even some pipes from USC. It is wonderful to hear all of this history from the two that made it all happen. It is getting exciting to know that “Hazel” will be back playing in under two years.
