HURRICANE -- The final concert of the 2015-2016 PipeSounds Series aims to leave the audience with something to remember.

Indeed, "Music to Remember" is the name of the concert, which will be performed by Maestro Hector Olivera on the world-class Harrah Symphonic Organ at Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church in Hurricane at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 1.

Olivera has developed personal interpretations of both classical and popular music that have amazed and delighted audiences around the world.

Olivera was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and began playing the pipe organ at age 3 with his father's encouragement. He studied music at the University of Buenos Aires and the prestigious Juilliard School of Music.

The maestro has performed in concert throughout the United States and with prestigious venues among many countries, including France, England, Australia, Germany, Belgium, New Zealand, China and in his native Argentina, where he was welcomed as a national hero with "standing room only" performances.

Olivera was acclaimed in 2010 at a magnificent recital at the renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The Pasadena Star quoted, "....the audience was on its collective feet at the end, deservedly...No encores were played...or needed."

The concert is presented by PipeSounds with the support of the Putnam County Bank. Admission is $10 adults; free for students and children.
