Organist Promotes Versatile Sounds For Instrument

Jan_Kraybill-new.jpg

  You hear organs all the time-- at the ballgame, in a spooky Halloween movie-- but it's also a classical music instrument.

On Friday's Up to Date, we talk with an organist who's tickled the multiple keyboards of ivories at the Kauffman Center about what makes this instrument special.

Guest:

  • Jan Kraybill, principal organist for the Dome and Spire Organ Foundation and organ conservator at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
