Michael Unger, the First Prize Winner of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) 2008 National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance (NYACOP), held in conjunction with the AGO national convention in the Twin Cities, Minnesota in June, 2008, is introduced in this video. The video features Mr. Unger's comments made while on location at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester, New York, in February, 2008, during the recording sessions for his Pro Organo CD release, which is offered as a part of the First Prize Winner's benefits, along with two years of concert bookings as arranged by the Karen MacFarlane Agency in Cleveland, Ohio.

In the video, we hear Michael Unger playing the beginning section of the Fugue on "O Traurigkeit, O Herzeleid" by Johannes Brahms, and portions of the Toccata in D-flat Major, Opus 104, by Joseph Jongen. The organ featured in the new Pro Organo release, scheduled for August, 2009, was recorded on the newly-installed and newly-dedicated 3-manual Paul Fritts organ at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester, New York.
