Happy New Year
By Donna Groom - Sub-Dean
(sub-dean@pitago.org)

Happy New Year! Out with the old and in with the new! New music, that is! We’ve all been through it at one time or another. Sometimes we just need choral and organ literature that can be put together in a few rehearsals, or a prelude that doesn’t require hours on the bench, or an anthem that is not too high for the soprano section or that can be done by 8 to 10 choir members, right?

I am sure that you also know that we have some of the most talented chapter members in the composition department! With that being said, I am proud to present, “Local Composers – Approachable Choral and Organ Literature.” Just like the title exclaims, our chapter members have volunteered to present their “approachable” works.

This fabulous program will take place on January 26, 2015, at Wallace Memorial Presbyterian Church, 1146 Greentree Road, Pittsburgh, 15220, phone 412.561.2431. There is a large, flat parking lot in the back of the church which is nice in the winter. Make sure your reservations are made by Friday, January 16, 2015. I would also like to thank Stephen Schall and Wallace Memorial for hosting our chapter meeting in such a beautiful worship space. See you there! 

 


Never come to a Chapter meeting before? Worried that it's stuffy and you won't know anyone? Don't know why you should come?

Be just and fear not! The Pittsburgh AGO Chapter is a friendly group that starts off the meeting with chit-chat around 6PM and has a wonderful buffet dinner every month (only $18). Dieting? Skip the dinner and come for the program; it's free and a benefit to you as a member.

Reservations are required if you're coming to the dinner in advance (10 days); you can make one at www.pitago.org (the Dinner Reservations link above/left) or contact reservations@pitago.org if you need more information or to make your reservation.

Do something different in the New Year and come to the meeting - you'll be glad you did!
