    Music professor to give lecture on liturgical instrument

    Pamela Decker, a professor in the School of Music, will give a presentation on the history of how dance rhythms have penetrated the literature of one of the oldest instruments devised by man – the organ.

    Decker, a composer and performer with much international experience, will give the free lecture/demonstration at 7 p.m. in Holsclaw Hall in the School of Music building.

    She will speak about how the bandoneon, an instrument similar to an accordion, came into prominence in the mid-18th century as an organ substitute for churches that could not afford the expense of a massive pipe organ. Uses outside the church also resulted in the instrument becoming associated with more secular places instead of church settings.

    Parking is available for $1.50 per hour in the Park Avenue Parking Garage, located on the northeast corner of North Park Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard. Use the pedestrian underpass to the Fine Arts complex.

    The lecture is part of the Faculty Community Lecture Series.
