1) The Art of (mis)tuning
Venue: Alliance Française, Aurora Colony, Banj.hills (lane next to Q-mart)
Date: Saturday 16th Sept. at 5.30pm
Most of us, having acoustic pianos at home must have been getting it tuned periodically but never realized the intricate skill that is essential to artfully 'mistune' it from our "perceived nice-sounding" intervals. Entry free. All are welcome. Please register at info@hydmusic.com

2) Guided tour around a Pipe Organ - the King of Instruments
Venue: The Church of St John the Baptist, located at the T-junction of SP Road, branching off to Secunderabad station to the right and East Marredpally to the left
Date: Saturday, 23rd Sept. at 5.30pm
The event would be start with a power point presentation followed by a walk-around the pipe organ structure and demo-playing by Commodore TMJ Champion, the Organist and Choir Director of the church. Few pupils who have qualified in Graded Organ Exam from the ABRSM will also play that day.
Commodore Champion is a retired senior naval officer and a freelance Music Teacher. He plays the pipe organ at St John's Church on Sundays and he has been a regular speaker and active participant at the HWMF events. He says that his endeavour would be to "simplify these two complex topics for the music-loving audience of our twin cities.”
Due to space constraints around the organ console in the church, those of you keen to attend this event would need to register with the HWMF for this before 20th Sept. 2017. Free will offering may be made towards the upkeep of this 109 year old pipe organ.
