James Yeager, our AGO District Convener and Director of Music at First Presbyterian Church in Albuquerque, will be our host for the opening event of the 2018-2019 season. We will begin at 3:00 PM with a Progressive Member Recital—there are two organs at FPC!
Following the recital, we will have a music sale, including organ music, choral music, and books about organs or choirs. Donations are being accepted now (we are NOT accepting single copies of choral anthems; we will gladly accept choral music if you have enough copies of a single piece for a choir to use).
If you are interested in performing on this recital or donating items for the music sale, please contact Sub-Dean Fred Graham (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will also need volunteers to organize the music for sale; please contact Fred if you are interested in this, as well.
