After the performance, he will present an in depth show-and-tell discussion of the design and building process involved in creating his array of unique musical instruments. Central to the discussion will be the mechanics and variants of the three distinct types of organ pipes: Flue pipes, Beating-Reed pipes, and Free-Reed pipes; all of which are featured in Solomon’s creations.
