Daniel Alfred Wachs, assistant professor, Conservatory of Music, College of Performing Arts, co-wrote and conducted a special musical program for young listeners at the Monterey Symphony’s 37
th
Annual Youth Concerts, held March 10 and 11.

The program, titled “The Case of the Missing Pipe(s?),” included dancers, a narrator and even an actor playing Sherlock Holmes, who helped unlock the mysteries of an orchestra by taking the children back to the time of Johann Sebastian Bach. 

A unique element of the program was the use of a historic Wurlitzer organ at the Steinbeck Institute of Art and Culture in Salinas, where the concerts were held. To read a news feature about the event, visit the
