Pomona College Organist William Peterson presents an all-Bach program on the Hill Memorial Organ in Bridges Hall of Music. The Harry S. and Madge Rice Thatcher Professor has played concerts in many parts of the United States offering all-Bach recitals, including complete performances of Bach's Dritter Theil der Clavierübung. His programs have also included concerts of French music from the Time of World War I and a Lecture-Recital "A Tribute to Aristide Cavaillé-Coll (1811-1899)." In October 2002, he played the Inaugural Concert on the Hill Memorial Organ built by C.B. Fisk of Gloucester, MA (Fisk, Op. 117). In 2006, he was heard on "Pipedreams" (National Public Radio) in a broadcast program that included music of Tournemire, Duruflé, and Widor.
