    Who is harold smart

    Hello all,

    I apologise that this is not classically related and yet still posted inthe classical section but i did not know where else to put it!!

    Anyway, i am currently preparing for my solo BA Music recital at university and one of the pieces i am performing is Organ Hoedown by the organist Harold Smart. I am having a great deal of difficulty finding information on him or the piece and i just wondered if anyone knew anything about him?

    I have searcehd on the net but to no success :-(

    I just need a bit of background information on him to put in my programme notes, any help would be most appreciated!!

    Hi Debs,

    I didn`t know Harold Smart, so I had a look around; there`s really nothing about him out there. Except there seems to be some sort of competition named in his honour.. maybe you could mention that- assuming it`s the same Harold Smart... or list some of his other works; there seem to be quite a few.

    Harold Smart

    I to am researching Harold Smart, my wife's mum dated him years ago when she was a singer with the Peter Knight Singers. I am researching him for different reasons, he used to own a Maestrovox keyboard which my wife's grandad designed in 1952. I would be happy to share information and am trying to track down his family to see if they know anything about the Maestrovox. The maestrovox page can be found at www.debbiecurtis.co.uk/id99.html
