Happy Holidays!
Our Next Program
will be in January.

When: January 21, 2018 at 3:00 pm

Where: Place to be announced in the Trumpetings                                            

What: The Service Playing Exam – the First Step!

How about exploring in a low-key (no pun intended) setting how to prepare and pass this very do-able hurdle in organ playing. Details coming. At this meeting we will outline what is required to pass the exam, why you should be interested and spend time on the two hurdles, hymn transposition and sight-reading hymns.

 

When: Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 4:00                                      
Where: Westminster Presbyterian Church, 125 N Wilkinson Street, Dayton. 45402

What: Matt Phelps Organ Recital

Matt Phelps is a “local boy done good” graduating from Wright State, and CCM before being hired at the West End Methodist Church, Nashville, as their Minister of Music. West End is possibly one of the largest UM churches in the U.S. with a very large choir and music program.

Matt began organ lessons with Jerry Taylor, was accepted into Juilliard to study with Paul Jacobs and spent two years as a Director of Music in New York before returning to Cincinnati and now Nashville. He sang in the Westminster Choir during his Wright State days and has composed several choral anthems that are sung by major choirs.

 

When: Sunday, April 15, 2018  (Van Leaves Westminster at 2:00 pm)

Where: Details and directions will be published in the spring

What: Organ Crawl of three churches north and dinner together.

Leader: Sub-Dean Terry Donat.

We enjoy touring a particular area in the greater Miami Valley with its interesting churches. Once at each location we get intros, background, see spectacular interiors, play one or more organs if we feel like it. Details, maps and churches will be announced in the spring. We will end the tour with dinner together.
