Midday Masterworks to feature organ, alphorn

MONROE - "Another Side of Swiss" is the title for the Midday Masterworks program, a free half-hour organ mini-recital to be presented at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday at the United Methodist Church of Monroe and again at 5:15 p.m. at St. Victor Catholic Church in Monroe. In contrast to the Swiss folk music with which many people in Green County are familiar, this program will feature music for organ written by classically-trained Swiss-born composers, including Ernest Bloch and Louis Niedermeyer. Classical will meet folk in the performance of Carl Rutti's "Suite Pastorale," a five-part work for organ and alphorn based on traditional alphorn melodies from various parts of Switzerland.
