"Octopus Music" on Pipedreams in May 2021 - Music for 4 hands and 4 feet

The Chenault Duo

Specializing in and performing works written for four hands and four feet at one pipe organ console, Elizabeth and Raymond Chenault have made a monumental contribution to pipe organ repertoire through their commissioning, premiering, and recording of over sixty organ duets in a wide array of styles, from John Rutter and Stephen Paulus, to their own arrangements of Christmas carols, Wagner arias, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. We'll hear them perform on May 23rd at 8pm.
