October Dean's Message
I hope you're enjoying this cooler weather and that your choir and personal rehearsals for the fall are all going well.
Last month, the chapter had a nice representation at the David Briggs recital at Trinity Episcopal Church in Danville. The church was completely full, and we had eight chapter members attend. I'd like to personally thank Neva Thompson on her hard work on this. I was unable to attend, but I was told that the reception could only be described as "lavish"!
This month is a very exciting month in the AGO, as we are preparing for our first joint program with the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society! Sunday, October 7, both chapters will host theatre organist John Baratta at the Kentucky Theater. He will give a short recital, and then we will all join in a sing-along. The night will end with a silent movie, College. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from any member of the BG-ATOS, the Kentucky Theater, or www.LexTheaterPipes.org. You won't want to miss it!
As always, if you ever need anything, or there's something you find newsworthy you'd like to have in the newsletter, feel free to call, email, or text me any time.
Stay tuned for more exciting programs this year, and thank you to everyone for your support of the Lexington AGO!
