BRATTLEBORO Lunchtime Pipe Organ Series - Tim Pyper: Organ music will range from J.S. Bach to contemporary composer Zachary Wadsworth. Described by "The American Organist" as possessing "effortless technique and sensitive musicality," Pyper's practice as an organist involves an interest in embodied learning. He's won first prize at several organ competitions, such as the Arthur Poister Memorial Competition and Royal Canadian College of Organists' National Competition. His solo recitals have aired on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the National Public Radio program Pipedreams. 12 noon-1 p.m. The Lunchtime Pipe Organ Series is one of several innovative programs utilizing the historic 1906 Estey pipe organ - installed in the sanctuary of the former church renovated in 2019 to house Epsilon Spires. Free. Epsilon Spires, 190 Main St. Information: Jamie Mohr:,
