Our Show and Tell for today is Mormon Tabernacle Organist Richard Elliott. He is a wonderful musician and puts on a great show in this video clip.
To add to your enjoyment of this piece, here’s a little background info:
Around the time this video was recorded, Richard was talking with some friends who asked how his shoulder was doing. He cheerfully explained that all seemed well. His arm was finally out of the sling and he was glad to have some mobility in his arms again.
“Rick, what did you do during those months you couldn’t use your hands?” a fellow organist inquired.
“Improved my pedal technique!” was his quick response.
Apparently it was time well spent . . .
. . . it almost makes me wish for a shoulder injury . . .
