The Wichita Kansas Chapter of the American Guild of Organists opened its program year with a catered dinner, installation of officers, and a recital by organist Scott Montgomery at Plymouth Congregational Church on Saturday evening, September 11. The public recital celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 3 manual, 46-rank Schantz Organ. Guest artist Scott Montgomery played a diverse program of organ literature including William Byrd, J.S. Bach, 19th-century Romantic composers, and Joe Utterback. His playing demonstrated artistry, a flawless technique, and superb musicianship.
Founded in 1954, the Wichita Chapter’s first Dean was the late W. Arnold Lynch. Since that time, 25 other members have served as Dean of the Chapter. Nationally and internationally known organists and choirs the Chapter has helped sponsor in Wichita have included E. Power Biggs, Diane Bish, Catherine Crozier, Maurice & Madeleine Duruflé, Virgil Fox, Jean Langlais, the Wichita Community Children’s Choir, and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, UK.
