Munich Organist Christian Bischof Visits Kalamazoo

Christian Bischof, organist at St.-Margaret-Kirche in Munich, Germany and a rising star, performed on September 30 at St. Augustine Cathedral, Kalamazoo. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance which also includes Karl Schrock and Tom Fielding, he discusses his training as a performer and his certification as an organ "expert" - someone qualified to diagnose and repair this highly complex instrument.
