    Can anyone tell me if there are pipe organs in Saudi Arabia? I have a student going to do graduate work in economincs there and he is a also a superb organist who will want to stay in practice.

    Good question, D P Werner,

    I haven't the slightest idea ... I ran a quick search on Martin Doering's database (requires paid subscription to access) and didn't find anything - same with a google search ... but not intrigued about knowing for myself, too.

    I would imagine there are electronics/digitals ... practicing the notes can be done on practically anything that has multiple manuals and a full pedalboard.
    Kh ~~.

    Golly gee, organs in Saudi Arabia - unless its in a concert hall, music school, or someone's home or a Church, it sounds like they'll be out of luck.
