Due to the impending weekend blizzard, the lecture by Jonathan Ambrosino on the history of the organs at Trinity Church, Copley Square has been postponed. Please look for a forthcoming announcement to reschedule this event.
Word has been received of the death of John Obetz. Among other accomplishments, he was the principal organist at the Community of Christ (formerly RLDS) Auditorium, and later, the Temple, in Independence, Mo. He played for concerts and services on the Casavant Frères (1993) at the Temple, and an Aeolian-Skinner (1959) in the Community of Christ’s auditorium. For 26 years, Obetz performed a weekly recital syndicated as a radio program called The Auditorium Organ.

For many years, this chapter has hosted a competition for young organists, which is a part of the AGO/Quimby Regional Competitions for Young Organists. They are made possible by a generous grant from Michael Quimby, President, Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc. In 2015, our competition has been scheduled for next spring on April 11. The location will be announced in the near future. I am pleased to announce that we have three stellar competitors, so check in again for details.
We have received a transcript of the sermon given by the Rev. Barbara Cawthorne Crafton at the Opening Service of Interfaith Worship on June 24, 2014, at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. Click here to download a copy.
