AGO forum/lecture by Fred Frahm
Composing for the Organ
St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 425 University Blvd NE, Albuquerque 87106
Have you ever wished you could kick out creative, inspiring hymn introductions and preludes? Could your preludes and postludes use some new possibilities? New Mexico composer and organist Frederick Frahm will present a forum on composing for the organ. The forum will have two parts. First, Fred will discuss composing specifically for the organ and how to think outside the box about registration. In the second section, he will discuss constructing an original composition. He will focus on creating compositions based on material from hymn tunes. In fact, the entire class will work together to compose and play an original composition. Everyone is welcome. Questions? Contact Jeremy Wirths, Sub-Dean, at 505-358-6729 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
