December Dean's Message
The time is here - all your hard work practicing is finally getting ready to pay off! If your calendar looks anything like mine, you have more days playing for events and recitals and cantatas than you do at home. Make sure to make time for yourself this Christmas season to relax and enjoy the holidays. My favorite thing to do is to go to the late Christmas Eve service at Christ Church Cathedral. I hope you find your own thing to help you appreciate this special time.
This month, we will be having our fourth annual Christmas Pipes recital at Central Baptist Church at 2:00, Sunday, December 9, and will feature Larry Sharp, Mark DeAlba, Anna Pan, Bill Webber, Grant Holcomb, and myself. Afterward, we will have a lovely reception hosted by Angela Hurley and Nancy Dunn. All donations received will go toward our Pedals, Pipes, and Pizza program in February, so invite your churches and friends! I hope you will be able to join us.
Finally, mark on your calendars our "Twelfth Night Party", hosted by Larry Sharp at his home in Winchester on January 5. It will be a nice evening to socialize and relax after a busy holiday season.
Thank you for everything you do throughout the year for the AGO, as well as music as a whole in your communities. I hope you have a blessed Christmas.
