    I'd LOVE to attend this program! (But maybe not enough to travel down from Boise...)

    The tunes from Saint-Saens' "Organ" symphony was brought to a wider audience by the movie "Babe" (a favorite - you know, the sheep-herding piglet). Wonderful music! And the article doesn't even mention the same composer's "Bacchanale" from "Samson and Delilah" - also on the program, and another personal favorite.

    I'm curious about the instrument (organ) at Abravanel Hall. I hope it's a nice one! I know there's a nice one nearby... under that big dome. It has "shivered my timbers" on multiple occasions. (The organ at the Conference Center is awesome, too... but IMO it's "second fiddle" behind the Aeolian-Skinner instrument in the Tabernacle.)
