SOUNDS FROM THE SANCTUARY: EVERYONE DANCE!

Episode No. 7: Everyone Dance!              

Join us for EVERYONE DANCE! Featuring guest organist Dr. Emma Whitten, Associate Director of Music and Organist at Mission San Luis Rey Parish in Oceanside, California, the largest of the 21 California

missions. Dr. Whitten just recently recorded a program for the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Guild of Organists consisting of organ music influenced by many forms of Dance, old and new.

As a complement to her Los Angeles performance, Sounds from the Sanctuary Host David Ball and Dr. Emma Whitten discuss the centuries-old relationship between dance forms and organ music, and even explore Dr. Whitten’s own

unique background of both math and music degrees.
