The upgrades include: New tracker touch keyboards, a variety of solo and foundation stops for the manuals, 32' and 16' reeds and foundations in the pedal, and a huge digital tuba imperial in the front of the cathedral. Brakel will play major concert works of all periods to showcase the diversity of the instrument.

New Organist Fund  
The Michael Cohen Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 by Michael's partner Carl Brown, his family and his many, many friends. The New Organist Fund shelters both permanently restricted gifts to named scholarships, and restricted gifts for the support and development of new organists.

Many young, aspiring organists benefit from this fund each year, some who otherwise would be unable to attend a Pipe Organ Encounters.  More......
