David Herman, Trustees Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Music and University organist, hosted 20 students and three teachers from the Newark Center for Creative Learning on May 30 in a “Meet the Pipe Organ” event at Bayard Sharp Hall. Students learned how pipe organs work, examined sample pipes that each got to hold, and heard Herman play music from Star Wars on the University’s Jefferson Pipe Organ. Students then went up into the gallery and played the organ, one-by-one, which Herman said was a highlight.
