Those familiar with the popular television program The Joy of Music featuring renowned organist Diane Bish and pipe organs all over the world, will be interested to know that she is doing another program featuring the AMERICAN QUEEN. Several organist friends of mine are aboard the cruise, which departs New Orleans on Saturday, May 24th, with stops (river conditions permitting) at Oak Alley, St. Francisville, Natchez, Vicksburg and Helena, before the trip concludes at Memphis on May 31st. Organ tapings will be done at the Presbyterian churches in Natchez and Vicksburg.

This is the second time Miss Bish has done a "Music on the Mississippi" cruise and the first one is documented on DVD, which is available for purchase from her online catalog. Read more about it at and click on Musical Tours.
