Dean’s Message July 2016

It’s summer in the Northwest! While many of us will go to vacation¬†somewhere, we all know that our summer here is wonderful too, and whether we are coming or going, it is wonderful to be in Tacoma. ¬†Our weather, our fresh produce, berries of all kinds, stone fruits from Yakima — you can hardly beat the summer here. There are some organ related events and concerts in the summer also, and as you seek them out, I hope you will enjoy those, too! For most of us it is hopefully a less stressful time, so it is a great season to learn new repertoire! Don’t we all have some “to do” music on the back burner? I am ready to dive in since my baby is sleeping longer and longer. However you spend it, I wish all of you a great summer and will look forward to seeing you as we come back together for our September meeting. I am looking forward to our new season! (As the details come together, we’ll let you know–watch this space!) If you think of any friends who might be interested in joining us, please talk to them and hopefully you can bring them along to our meetings and events. Our organs here in Tacoma are amazing, as is our community. We are truly blessed in organs and organ culture in Tacoma, and as we move into a new season, I hope we can share with more and more friends. Until then, a wonderful summer to all of you!
