November Dean's Message
Just about a year ago, the Board was introduced to the idea of hosting a composition contest. The contest was ultimately approved using funds generously gifted to the Chapter by the Marcellan Fox Estate. We launched the program in late winter with advertising locally, to several college music programs, and once with an ad in the TAO. We received seven entries. An extremely talented group of folks were selected to review all of the entries and make final judgment regarding awards. Please join me in thanking them for their interest and participation in this effort.
Now, it is with pleasure that I present the winners of the "Organ rEvolution!" Composition Contest:
Shared Top Prize ($750 each)
Honorable Mention ($100)
We are currently working to select a time, place and musicians to perform these pieces in the spring. Watch for more information in future newsletters. In the meantime, should you have ideas about how to expand the influence of the organ, the Board would welcome your ideas!
In closing, I wish you well this fall season and hope that you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Peace, Christopher Glenn
