Dean’s Message October 2020

Dear chapter members,

Despite this year’s scourges of disease, wildfire, and a less-than-civil presidential election—I still love fall. I love the changing leaves, brisk winds, butternut squash, and back-to-school supplies. And I love the feeling of a new beginning, with new things to learn.

In this time of social distancing, it’s hard to replicate the types of social gatherings and concert experiences we would normally be sharing as a guild. However, education can still happen! September’s program was a lovely presentation on Bach, with a virtual visit to the organ of Epiphany Parish, Seattle. This month’s program on 19th-century American organs promises to be fascinating as well. On the national level, AGO has greatly increased its online educational resources, including a sequential series of videos for the new organist—which might have a few tips for those of use who are not new. Click here to get started. And I hope to see you soon, at least on Zoom!
