Zarex Corporation - overview.

Zarex Corporation was established in 1995 by Frederick Hohman, a leading American concert organist and an audio producer / engineer. Hohman's training and experience includes over a decade at the Eastman School of Music (University of Rochester, New York), where he earned the Performer's Certificate, Mus.B. [distinction], M.M. and D.M.A. degrees. Zarex was initially formed to serve the business needs of the Pro Organo CD label. Pro Organo was established as a commerical, classical music recording label in 1984, and is now operated and administered by Zarex.

Zarex Corporation has nothing to do with the chocolate soft drink by the name of Zarex that was first popular in New England in the mid to late 20th-century. Zarex Corporation takes its name from one of the many muses that interacted with Apollo in Greek mythology. The character named Zarex was "the messenger of music" and would deliver messages in song upon arriving at his destination. Since audio recordings of music are modern-day objects that serve much the same function, bringing music to the recipient, Zarex was the name chosen when the Pro Organo label sought to operate under a corporate name.

Zarex expanded to TV program production in 1996, with the Midnight Pipes tv series (1996-2000), which was a series centered upon organs and organists. Series excerpts from Zarex's Midnight Pipes series are posted for archival viewing at YouTube). Production and post-production of the series was handled at Zarex's studio. The studio upgraded to HDTV in 2007. Today, Zarex video studio produces promotional videos about new releases on the Pro Organo label and video production for a variety of classical music artists and ensembles..

In 2004, Zarex announced the publication of a series of organ music scores, available under the brand name Zarex Scores. These music scores have been sold since 2013 at the Pro Organo CD label website

In 2008, Zarex ventured into research, with an attempt to develop a new line of switching systems for both digital organ consoles and pipe organ consoles, under the "Pipewave™" trademark. Development in this area ceased in October, 2012 without a product coming to market. Development resumed in 2014, with a shift to general console design and organ console innovations, which are visible in the digital music instrument platform announced in December 2016 under the trade name "Orgamuse."

Concert appearances by organist Frederick Hohman, and occasionally the concert apperances of other artists who have appeared on Pro Organo label releases, are also administered through Zarex Corporation.
