The children were given an opportunity to come up and see how the organ is made and how it works after the concert. The children were dressed in their costumes, since right afterwards they would head to the University of Virginia to Trick-or Treat on the Lawn.

TUCSON REAL ESTATE ...Wildcats Win, Wildcats Win And They're 7-1 What's the big deal about 7-1? Glad you asked.
