March Update

Here we are again, it seems like just yesterday I was putting together the February edition and here we are, March. This past month has been a month of planning and preparation, particularly for the June 2015 – Pipe Organ Encounter. Over 3000 emails were sent to members in our region and the south central region, plus over 300 brochures were dropped into the mail. Excitement is building as we begin to receive our first registrations and make final plans for activities and recitals. It’s time for you to start thinking about how you might be able to contribute to the POE. The most helpful thing you could do is spread the word! Think of any possible students you could invite to participate or even sponsor for this exciting event.

In addition to the POE, we have a lot of exciting events planned for the Spring. March begins with Young Organist Competition, local scholarship auditions, and our Choral Workshop. In April we will be featuring our own chapter members in a recital. Support our chapter by attending these invites and by bringing a guest. I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we can only continue to strengthen the chapter by supporting our local events and outreach to guests for each event. This newsletter is full of information and ways that you can contribute to the chapter!
