2012 Festival Program Booklet
Program Booklet for the East Texas Pipe Organ Festival, November 11-15, 2012 honoring the life and work of Roy Perry. This 8 1/2 x 11 program booklet of 76 pages contains information on the Aeolian-Skinner organs that Mr. Perry designed at First Presbyterian Church, Kilgore, Texas, St. Luke's United Methodist Church, Kilgore, First Baptist Church, Longview, Texas, and First Baptist Church, Nacogdoches, Texas, as well as the 1985 Ross King pipe organ at Trinity Episcopal Church, Longview, Texas. The booklet contains essays by Roy Perry on three of the featured instruments, plus his autobiographical sketch entitled "Poor Bob's Boy," plus many photos of Mr. Perry and Alexander Boggs Ryan, whose life was also honored at this year's festival, the Williams Family of New Orleans (who installed and lovingly maintained each of these Aeolian-Skinner pipe organs), and the organs and churches, plus other fun ads and vintage photos and letters from the archives. Complete recital programs performed by Jeremy Bruns, Charles Callahan, Ken Cowan, Scott Davis, Richard Elliott, David Ford, Ann Frohbieter, Christopher Houlihan, Christopher Jennings, Thomas Murray, Larry Palmer, Walt Strony, Brett Valliant, and Bradley Welch are included, along with each performer's biography and photo. This is a great keepsake for a memorable "once-in-a-lifetime" event.
