Dean's Message

Happy March!

Time to dig out that Lent and Easter music out - perhaps it will cause the warmer weather to start!

Our March program will take place THIS WEEKEND, on Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7, with a recital Friday night and masterclass Saturday morning with Ohio University professor and good LexAGO friend Paul Barte. Both events will take place at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church in Lexington. I hope to see you there!

Next year is our chapter's 75th anniversary, and our planning committee is well underway with recitals, workshops, and social events. The schedule of events will be announced in the May newsletter. One of our events will be a lunch catered by the chapter to celebrate this anniversary, and we are planning on having memorabilia from earlier days in the chapter - so if you have anything related to the chapter from years ago that you'd like to loan to the chapter, please let me know.

Finally, our April program will be a harpsichord workshop, but we will also include an "organ plus" session at the end of the workshop for you to have a chance to present your favorite pieces for organ and solo instrument. Please send me an email and let me know if you're interested in participating in this.

Thanks for all you do for the chapter, and I hope to see you around soon!

James
