First Meeting – Sunday, September 27, 2015, 6:00pm
Potluck Dinner & Presentation
“Registration: Getting the most out of digital organs.” – We on the executive committee realize that a large number of our members play digital organs, and we certainly need to offer programs that cate to their needs. With that in mind, we are meeting at the Evangelical Covenant Church (where member Sharon Carlson is organist), at 3025 Edison Rd, South Bend. The organ is an Allen digital computer organ, of the type with the punch cards for “alterable voice.” I will be the presenter, and will show a number of ways to use that type of organ for repertoire. “How do I bring of Trumpet Voluntary on a smallish organ with no really big trumpet?” “How can I get some color with a limited stoplist?” Come and find out! (I don’t claim to have all the answers, though. Others are welcome to chime in!)
Second Meeting – Saturday, October 10, 2015, 10:00 AM
Alan Morrison, Professor of Organ at the Curtis Institute of Music and Chairman of the Organ Department at Westminster Choir College
Note the recital – Alan Morrison, Culver Memorial Chapel, Sunday, October 11, 4pm
Alan is here as my guest recitalist for the fall. He will be playing a program including works of Vivaldi (a la Bach), Franck, Duruflé, Stover, Wilson (Anne), and Sowerby. I guarantee you will be wowed my this man’s playing! He is thoroughly musical, and technically brilliant, and his program will certainly take advantage of the resources of the 59-rank Moller/Fabry organ!
