Violinists carry their own, familiar instrument to every concert. Pianists may play different pianos, with different characteristics, but generally all pianos work the same way. Organists have the peculiar challenge of learning an entirely new instrument, each time they perform. For Christopher Houlihan, this is a lengthy process. Daniel Gilliam talks with Houlihan about discovering a new instrument, and his favorite work on his concert at St. Francis in the Fields on November 20 at 5pm.
