Besides the French organs, there are also important Italian and German organs in Brazil. Moorman-Stahlman will perform representative organ works from each country. She will also include a piece for organ and 3 trumpets written by Brazilian composer Handel Cecilio as well as piano pieces by Brazilian composers, Nazareth and Villa-Lobos as a musical dessert.
