But something happened on the
way to the chapel.
“Things were going great until
about six months into it,” he said, “and
we got emotionally involved.
“My lessons went down the tube.”
Less than a year after they met, the
two church organists heard wedding
bells of their own.
Twenty-five years later, Harbach
is a music professor at Washington
State University, and George is a jazz
recorder, conductor and performer.
The two co-own a publishing com
pany called Vivace Press, which has
compact discs in more than 200 record
stores and has releases played on more
than 67 U.S. radio stations.
The recent tocus or both musicians
work has been to bring
underrepresented, minority compos
ers into the mainstream.
George released a compact disc in
August called “Close Your Eyes:
Women Jazz Composers.” It focuses
on women jazz composers from the
well-known to the not-so-well known.
At WSU, Harbach teaches music
for non-music majors and, with the
help of multimedia and live perfor
mances, educates students who have
little knowledge of music.
She works with composers from
other countries, including a composer
from Russia’s Ukraine. She also re
cently released a compact disc of child
prodigies, including Mozart and an 8
year-old pianist from London.
If George is offered the position at
UNL, Harbach said she would like to
work with the music faculty.
Harbach and George occasionally
merge their talents, but both said it
was difficult finding time to rehearse.
“It takes a lot, but we enjoy it,”
Harbach said, laughing. “It keeps us
off the streets.”
George said their busy lives haven’t
allowed time for children, but they do
have four cats. The cats are like sou

“We have one big 16-pounder from
Rochester (N.Y.),” Harbach said.

Harbach said it might be time for a
“I’ve lived in the East Coast, lived
on the West Coast,” she said, “now
it’s time for the middle.”
Gus Kravas, vice provost for stu

would miss George and Harbach if
“So, I understand you guys are the
ones trying to steal our provost,” he
Kravas said George’s list of
strengths “goes on and on” and that he
is a person who “sinks his teeth into
trying to do something.”
George has tremendous energy,
Kravas said, and involves himself in
every aspect of the university from
student functions to retirement parties
for faculty members.
“He’s just consumed by his work,
and he works all the time,” Kravas
said. “He’s the kind of individual who

said, he would push the university into

points that separates institutions of
the future from those looking in the
rearview mirror,” he said.

John Beacon, director of the
Office of Scholarships and Finan

about direct lending.
“He said he was for it and that it
was just scandalous what was hap

good to hear that.”

“He knows what he’s doing,”
Moeser’s visit to UNL was not
his first. He was the keynote speaker

of Music last fall.
For a group of music students,

“He’s the guy,” said Jeremy
Bankson, a junior organ major.
Bankson said he became a fan of
Moeser’s after reading his column
in the American Guild of Organists
Both Moeser and his wife are
organists, and Moeser taught organ
performance at the University of
Kansas for 17 years.
But if offered the chancellor seat,
he said, he probably wouldn’t pull
up an organ bench.
“Playing the organ is like being
a brain surgeon,” he said. “You
