Used Music Extravaganza!

September 17, 2022 

Allen Organ Studios, 10 Becker Terrace, Delmar

What a sale!  Several members and friends attended and perused through the vast collection of music and CD’s that we have. There was lots of talking and laughing in addition to buying. Special thanks goes to Brad Day for housing our collection and hosting this event, and to Susan Lohnas for keeping everything so well organized.  Proceeds from the sale, $200, went to the Chapter’s Scholarship Fund for new organists.

Music for Advent

October 15, 2022   11:00AM

St. George’s Episcopal Church, 40 N. Ferry St., Schenectady, NY

Hosted by Brian J. Taylor

Fifteen members and friends attended our “Music for Advent” program at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Schenectady, NY. It was nice to see one of our Young Organist members attending, Jeffrey Boeck. Several members played and/or shared various advent pieces as well as some collection books of Advent/Christmas music. After the program, eight of us walked over to Bountiful Bread for lunch. It was a great way to spend part of a Saturday with members and friends. Special thanks to Brian Taylor for hosting the event.
